His Last Bow is a collection of seven Sherlock Holmes stories
(eight in American, and some British, editions) by Arthur Conan Doyle, as well
as the title of one of the stories in that collection. Originally published in
1917, it contains the various Holmes stories published between 1908 and 1913, as
well as the one-off title story from 1917.
The collection was originally called Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes
and did not contain the actual story His Last Bow, which appeared later,
after the full-length The Valley of Fear was published. However later
editions added it and changed the title. Some recent complete editions have
restored the earlier title.
The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge was not originally published under
that name; it is a lengthy two-part story, consisting of The Singular
Experience of Mr John Scott Eccles and The Tiger of San Pedro, and on
original publication it bore no collective title other than "A Reminiscence of
Mr Sherlock Holmes".
