The Strand magazine was a great success, the early issues a veritable compendium of the literary greats of the day. from Kipling to Churchill, H.G. Wells to Max Beerbohm' 

The first publication of all of these stories (with the US edition preceding The Adventure of the Dying Detective in the Collier's Magazine, by a month).  A few volumes rubbed on the spine, generally  a good run.
