Leblanc, Maurice: Arsene Lupin vs. Herlock Sholmes, v1, 21 March 2008.

This title was released under a Creative Commons License, with additional acknowledgement placed at the end of the book. Book was acquired from Munseys, BUT REFORMATED BY ME TO MY SPECIFICATIONS.
_________________________________

Of course, Herlock Sholmes is really Sherlock Holmes. I acknowledge where this version came from. However, the cover I used - from the same source - is different than the title of the story (or stories). As you will see, the cover (from 1949) uses the Sherlock Holmes name.

This is from the original source where I acquired the stories:

"The second collection of Lupin stories, by any name. Work is a mash-up of two translations, with chapter headings from the 1911 ed., and text, mostly, from a 1949 version. Had to call him Herlock."

And from another source:

"Created by Maurice LeBlanc during the early twentieth century, Arsène Lupin is a witty confidence man and burglar, the Sherlock Holmes of crime. The poor and innocent have nothing to fear from him; often they profit from his spontaneous generosity. The rich and powerful, and the detective who tries to spoil his fun, however, must beware. They are the target of Arsène’s mischief and tomfoolery. A masterful thief, his plans frequently evolve into elaborate capers, a precursor to such cinematic creations as Ocean’s Eleven and The Sting. Sparkling with amusing banter, these stories—the best of the Lupin series—are outrageous, melodramatic, and literate."

I hope you enjoy it.

P.S.: I realize the accent mark is missing. Right now, I'm getting ready to travel to Asia (north of Peru) to the beach for 2 two days, as this is one of Peru's national holidays. Think of me while I'm having fun at the beach!! -- hahahah
