    His Last Bow New Annotated (English Edition) Door: Arthur Conan Doyle,

    His Last Bow is a collection of seven Sherlock Holmes stories (eight in American editions) by Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as the title of one of the stories in that collection. Originally published in 1917, it contains the various Holmes stories published between 1908 and 1913, as well as the one-off title story from 1917.The collection was originally called Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes and did not contain the actual story His Last Bow, which appeared later, after the full-length The Valley of Fear was published. However later editions added it and changed the title. Some recent complete editions have restored the earlier title.When the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes were published in the USA for the first time, the publishers believed "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box" was too scandalous for the American public, since it dealt with the theme of adultery. As a result, this story was not published in the USA until many years later, when it was added to His Last Bow. Even today, most American editions of the canon include it with His Last Bow, while most British editions keep the story in its original place in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.

    Le Pied du Diable (French Edition) Door: Arthur Conan Doyle,

    Extrai:En publiant de temps à autre quelques-unes des expériences curieuses qui sont le fruit de ma longue et intime amitié avec M. Sherlock Holmes, je me suis constamment heurté à son aversion pour la publicité. Son esprit morose et cynique considérait un applaudissement du public comme quelque chose d’abominable, et rien ne l’amusa davantage à l’issue d’une affaire réussie que d’en créditer un fonctionnaire de la police officielle et d’écouter avec un sourire ironique le chœur des congratulations se trompant d’adresse. Cette attitude de mon ami (et absolument pas le manque de matériaux intéressants) est cause que, ces dernières années, je n’ai guère gâté le public. Ma participation à certaines de ses aventures était un privilège qui m’obligeait à la discrétion quand elle m’était commandée. C’est donc avec une surprise considérable que j’ai reçu mardi dernier un télégramme de Holmes (il n’écrivait jamais de lettre quand un télégramme pouvait suffire) ainsi conçu : « Pourquoi ne raconteriez-vous pas l’horreur des Cornouailles, qui est mon affaire la plus étrange ? » Je n’ai pas la moindre idée du motif qui lui a rafraîchi la mémoire, ni du caprice qui lui fait désirer de la publicité. Mais je me hâte, avant que ne me parvienne un nouveau télégramme contenant une injonction contraire, de fureter dans mes notes pour livrer cette histoire en pâture à mes lecteurs. Au printemps de 1897, la constitution de fer de Holmes commença à révéler quelques symptômes de lassitude sous le travail énorme qui l’accablait. En mars de cette année, le docteur Moore Agar de Harley Street (je raconterai quelque part la manière dramatique dont il fit la connaissance de Holmes), ordonna formellement au célèbre détective privé d’avoir à fermer tous ses dossiers et à prendre un repos complet, s’il voulait s’épargner une grave dépression nerveuse. Holmes ne s’intéressait nullement à son état de santé tant était absolu son détachement mental, mais la menace d’une incapacité permanente de travail l’incita à changer d’air et d’ambiance. Voilà - 4 - pourquoi nous nous trouvâmes tous les deux aux premiers beaux jours de 1897 dans une petite villa près de Poldhu Bay, à la pointe extrême de la presqu’île de Cornouailles. L’endroit était un peu banal : il convenait particulièrement à l’humeur lugubre de mon malade. Par les fenêtres de notre maisonnette aux murs blancs qui se dressait sur un promontoire herbeux, nous avions vu sur tout le demi-cercle sinistre de la baie des Monts, vieux piège mortel pour voiliers, sur sa bordure de falaises noires et de récifs balayés par les vagues. Du côté de la terre les environs étaient aussi sinistres. C’était une région de landes brunes ; de loin en loin la tour d’une église indiquait l’emplacement d’un village vieux comme le monde. Partout sur la lande on relevait les traces d’une race disparue qui avait laissé en témoignage de son existence d’étranges édifices de pierre, des tumulus de forme irrégulière qui contenaient des cendres de morts, et d’étranges ouvrages en terre qui évoquaient les guerres de la Préhistoire. Cet endroit mystérieux et ensorcelant, cette ambiance déprimante de peuples oubliés fouettèrent l’imagination de mon ami, qui consacra une grande partie de son temps à de longues marches et à des méditations solitaires. Il s’intéressa aussi à l’ancienne langue parlée dans les Cornouailles ; je me rappelle qu’il s’était mis dans la tête qu’elle avait été introduite par les marchands phéniciens qui faisaient le commerce de l’étain.
