Description

    A. Conan Doyle. The Hound of the Baskervilles - First Edition. London: George Newnes, Limited, 1902.

    First edition. Octavo. 358 pages. 16 tipped-in plates illustrated by Sidney Paget. Frontispiece.

    Original full scarlet cloth blocked and titled in black and gilt. Gilt dulled. Slight lean to binding. Hinge cracked lightly at title page. Some rubbing to boards; extremities worn, particularly spine ends and tips of corners. Spine is faded and crinkled. Spine also appears to have been repaired. A couple of the tipped-in plates are loose, and a few protrude slightly past page edges. Bookplate to front pastedown. No dust jacket. Overall, good or slightly better condition.

    Pasted to the verso of the front free endpaper are two pieces of paper which have been clipped from a handwritten note or letter on Conan Doyle's stationery. The first piece of paper contains Doyle's printed address "Undershaw, / Hindhead, / Haslemere." The second piece of paper reads "Yours very truly / A. Conan Doyle / [and a paraph beneath the signature]." The signature appears to be secretarial, but we are unable to state categorically whose signature this is. We provide a magnified image on our website.

    Green and Gibson. A Bibliography of A. Conan Doyle. A26a.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
