Originally published in Great Britain in 1890 by the
Walter Scott Company, Mysteries and Adventures collected together
seven of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's earliest fictional works. Three years
later, two international editions were issued and these featured five
additional stories. Conan Doyle was not to profit from any of these
ventures as, in order to have the stories carried by popular journals of
the day, he had signed over all rights to their owners. Prior to their
appearance in book form, several had been printed without credit and were
not commonly known to be the work of Conan Doyle.
The narratives in Mysteries and Adventures dance
confidently across the genres, touching upon colonial life, political
upheaval, the supernatural, romance and the furrow he would later plough
to great acclaim, crime.
These twelve entertaining tales plot Doyle's development
from budding young writer to the great author that he quickly became.
