THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES Stock code: 13492

Author / Artist:

Conan Doyle, Arthur

Publisher:

London: George Newnes. 1902

Description:

First edition in book form, first printing. Publisher's original red cloth with gilt and black titles and design to the front and spine. Illustrated with 16 full page plates by Sidney Paget. A very good or better copy. The binding is firm and square, the spine still rounded as issued. The contents are entirely complete and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. One of the illustrations is very slightly proud resulting in slight creasing at the blank far edge and there is some light spotting to the endpapers and margins of the odd page throughout. An excellent example. Sherlock Holmes' most famous case.
