Coming soon: Coffret 3 volumes Sherlock Holmes (French Edition)

Preorder this new Holmes book:

Coffret 3 volumes Sherlock Holmes (French Edition)

by Arthur Conan Doyle

This is a complete collection of works on Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle. This edition,though advertised as a French Edition, is actually and surprisingly, an English-French Bilingual Edition! In the body of the books, the English original is on the page on the left while the French translation is on the page on the right. The French pages also carry sketches as illustrations. The French translation is easy to read as it uses common, modern French vocabulary and a non-complicated syntax, closely matching the vocabulary and syntax of its English original. If you had taken at least two years of French in college, you probably could read the French translation without too much difficulty. The English original serves as a good reference in meaning and language.
