In February of 1900, Doyle said specifically of this book:
''It is difficult to make a volume of short stories homogeneous, but these have this in common, that they concern themselves with war and sport - a fact which may commend them to the temper of the times. Such as they are, I have chosen them as the fittest survivors out of the tales which I have written during the last six years."
First edition of this book, in good condition, ranges from $40 to $500. If you don't mind the condition, it's a great piece of original work by renowned author of Sherlock Holmes.
