书是美国制版的，排左右双栏（类似Reader's Digest的做法），据说是按照首次发表的杂志版排的，后来重制的小说均细致到按照The Strand杂志的版式标出发表期次。字体和排版风格绝对复古，唯一可惜的就是纸张偏白。图是Sidney Edward Paget为“The Strand”杂志手绘的插画，黑色基调，强对比反差，深可玩味。
书不是全本，只包括了The adventures of Sherlock Holmes，The memoirs of Sherlock Holmes，The return of Sherlock Holmes加上The hound of the Baskervilles。
Short stories缺His Last Bow (contains stories published 1908–1913 and 1917)和The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes (contains stories published 1921–1927)，当然这两个都不是The Strand出的。
Novel缺A Study in Scarlet (published 1887, in Beeton's Christmas Annual)，The Sign of the Four (published 1890, Lippincott's Monthly Magazine)和The Valley of Fear (serialised 1914–1915 in The Strand)最可惜是后者，也是The Strand的首版。
"The Hound of the Baskervilles" is considered to be one of the greatest of the Sherlock Holmes stories and one of the greatest mystery novels ever written. While most of Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories take the form of shorter narratives, readers will delight in the fact that "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is a full-length novel instead. At the center of this novel is the investigation of the murder of Sir Charles Baskerville. Could the ghost of the Hound of the Baskervilles, who as legend would have it, tore out the throat of Hugo Baskerville generations ago, have murdered Sir Charles? Or is the culprit a more earthly one? Discover along with Sherlock Holmes the true identity of the murderer.
