A Bright, Lovely Copy

    Arthur Conan Doyle. The Hound of the Baskervilles. Another Adventure of Sherlock Holmes. New York: McClure, Phillips & Co., 1902.

    First American edition, first state. Title-page printed in red and black. Octavo. [xii], [249], [1, blank] [8, ads], [2, blank] pages. With eight full-page illustrations by Sidney Paget inserted.

    Bound in presumed Tabard Inn Library binding; full red ribbed cloth, boards ruled in blind, spine ruled in gilt, gilt lettering on front board and spine, with no mention of publisher. Some light rubbing to extremities, some faint offsetting to endleaves, a few thumb marks to the sheets. A near fine and very attractive copy.

    Tabard Inn Library books were specially bound for hotels or other public businesses to lend out to their customers. They were bound in slightly smaller format in this relatively plain binding. This copy was not subjected to the wear and tear that these books normally are, nor does it have any library or ownership markings.

    Green and Gibson A26.c.i.
