    Description

    Arthur Conan Doyle. The Stark Munro Letters. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1895.

    First edition in book form. Octavo. 346 pages plus 24 pages of publisher's advertisements. Frontispiece.

    Green cloth over beveled boards, black endpapers. Board edges show minimal wear, corners are worn and bumped. Spine is skewed with moderate wear to ends. Front board is partially separated at spine and bears a small dark stain. Bowed back board. Hinge is a bit loose. Textblock is quite nice overall, with only a few instances of faint soiling, previous owner's name inscribed on initial pastedown. Written in the form of a series of letters by the novel's subject, Mr. Stark Munro, to his friend Herbert Swanborough. This great fictional work contains many semi-autobiographical passages taken from Doyle's personal relationships. The final note on the death of Mr. Munro and his wife in a train accident was edited out by Doyle in later editions.
