The most prominent naturalist in Britain before Charles Darwin, Richard Owen made empirical discoveries and offered theoretical innovations that were crucial to the proof of evolution. Among his many lasting contributions to science was the first clear definition of the term homology—“the same organ in different animals under every variety of form and function.” He also graphically demonstrated that all vertebrate species were built on the same skeletal plan and devised the vertebrate archetype as a representation of the simplest common form of all vertebrates. Just as Darwin’s ideas continue to propel the modern study of adaptation, so too will Owen’s contributions fuel the new interest in homology, organic form, and evolutionary developmental biology. His theory of the archetype and his views on species origins were first offered to the general public in On the Nature of Limbs, published in 1849. It reemerges here in a facsimile edition with introductory essays by prominent historians, philosophers, and practitioners from the modern evo-devo community.

He turned up the light, filled and lit a pipe, and then turned to the note from Sherlock Holmes. It read: "Pitt-Inspector MacLeish paid me a visit this evening to discuss the particulars of a murder that occurred at Coldfall Lodge, Tetherdown. Mr. Artimus Weatherill was brutally murdered and property taken, including a fair amount in sovereigns. There are some particulars regarding this event that puzzle MacLeish and since I am returning to Glasgow in the morning to testify in the Seamus Walsh affair, I took the liberty of telling the Inspector you would look into it in my absence. If your appointments will give you the morning, MacLeish will be at Coldfell Lodge at seven o'clock. Best regards, Holmes" Enter Joshua Pitt, inquiry agent, chess playing opponent of Dr. Watson, and one-time Baker Street Irregular who has set up shop little more than a block away on Baker Street. A young man in his late twenties, he is rarely without a smoking pipe at hand, a good blend of tobacco, and prefers strong Assam tea and Highland whiskey. His cases are as much adventure as mystery, and the reader is invited along for the ride, in a hansom, of course.

Arthur Conan Doyle's His Last Bow collects together eight Sherlock Holmes stories. Originally called Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes and not containing the title story His Last Bow, later editions of this book added that final story and changed the title. When the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes were first sold America, the publishers removed The Adventure of the Cardboard Box, considering its dealing with adultery to be too scandalous for the American public. The story was not released in the United States until year later, when it was included in His Last Bow.

A hallucination of Sherlock Holmes helps hardboiled PI Jack Watson solve a perplexing case in this unique take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary detective. In the city of Los Angeles, there’s no private detective quite like Jack Watson. A tough-as-nails gumshoe, he’s made a reputation as the kind of sleuth who will take any case, no matter how sleazy or small. He’s in the middle of a particularly nasty divorce investigation when his client’s mistress sees fit to club Watson on the back of the head with an iron. When he comes to, he’s in the hospital looking at Sherlock Holmes. Holmes is translucent and floating slightly above the floor—a figment of Watson’s imagination that has come to transform a mediocre detective into a great one. Hired by the notorious Hollywood producer Osgood Kane, Watson is about to stumble onto a truly baffling case, the sort only Holmes can solve. They’re thousands of miles from Baker Street, and a lifetime away from the Victorian era, but when Watson’s brawn teams up with Holmes’s brain, the game is afoot once again. Written by legendary Holmes expert Barry Day, whose Sherlock Holmes: In His Own Words and in the Words of Those Who Knew Him is the quintessential biography of the great sleuth, this is an adventure that even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle couldn’t have dreamed up. Witty, exciting, and irresistibly fun, Two for One bridges the gap between the modern mystery and history’s greatest private eye.
