Product Description

8vo. 1st edition. Some bowing to boards, negligible rubbing to edges and fore corners. Almost imperceptable fading to spine. Some toning to leaves, a little dust soiling to top edge of text block. Minor rippling to illustrated leaves long fore-edge. Remarkably bright copy. VG.

Considered one of Sherlock Holmes's finest outings, The Hound of the Baskervilles also marked the first appearance of the brilliant detective in almost a decade. Desperate to move on to other projects, Doyle had ostensibly killed Holmes off in the 1893 story 'The Final Problem'. However, this masterwork of tangled motives and chilling premonitions proved such a success that, in the end, Doyle would continue to revisit the character throughout the rest of his life. This is an exceptionally bright and clean first edition of one of Doyle's best-loved works.
