Illustrated edition with original illustrations by Richard Gutschmidt, a famous German painter, book illustrator and graphic artist.

„A Study in Scarlet” is the first Sherlock Holmes book written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Dr John H. Watson meets the great detective Sherlock Holmes and together they solve a case of murder, in which Watson is amazed at Holmes’ „science of deduction”. The only clues are a wedding ring, a gold watch, a pocket edition of Boccaccio’s „Decameron”, and a word scrawled in blood on the wall.
