New illustrated edition with original drawings by Walter Paget and Frederic Dorr Steele.

‘The Adventure of the Dying Detective’, in some editions simply titled ‘The Dying Detective’, is one of the 56 Sherlock Holmes short stories written by British author Arthur Conan Doyle, at first published in Collier’s magazine and The Strand Magazine, and then part of a collection of eight stories published as a book entitled ‘His Last Bow: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes’ in some editions titled ‘His Last Bow: Some Later Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes’.

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (22 May 1859 – 7 July 1930) was an Irish-Scots writer and physician, most noted for creating the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes and writing stories about him which are generally considered milestones in the field of crime fiction.

He is also known for writing the fictional adventures of a second character he invented, Professor Challenger, and for popularising the mystery of the Mary Celeste. He was a prolific writer whose other works include fantasy and science fiction stories, plays, romances, poetry, non-fiction and historical novels.
