Description

    Serialized in the American Edition of The Strand

    Arthur Conan Doyle. The Hound of the Baskervilles. [New York: George Newnes], 1901-1902.

    First American edition in serial form, published in the American edition of The Strand. Two large octavo volumes.

    Uniformly bound in full green buckram with gilt spine titles. All edges sprinkled red. Spine slightly sunned. Some thumb-soiling to text, with a few creased corners. Previous owner - and Baker Street Irregular - James Montgomery has delightfully written the history of the publication of the story on the front free endpaper of each volume, denoting also the page number where each installment may be found within. Montgomery was famous for beginning the tradition that turned into the Christmas Annual of the Baker Street Journal. Overall, a very good set.

    Doyle's great novella of Holmes and Watson chasing the beast upon the moor was serialized in the London edition of The Strand in 1901-1902, with each installment appearing one month later in the American edition of the magazine. Thus, the entire story is serialized here from September, 1901 to May, 1902, with the first three installments in the first volume and the remaining six installments in the second volume.
