    A[rthur]. Conan Doyle. The Hound of the Baskervilles. Another Adventure of Sherlock Holmes. London: George Newnes, 1902. First edition. Octavo (7.25 x 4.75 inches; 183 x 122 mm.). [8], 358, [359], [1, blank] pages; frontispiece and fifteen additional illustrated plates by Sidney Paget inserted throughout. Publisher's red cloth, spine lettered and stamped in gilt, front board lettered in gilt and stamped in gilt and black; all edges trimmed; plain endpapers. Spine gently leaning and a little concave toward the crown; backstrip faded just a shade; spine ends very softly pushed, with just a touch of wear at the edges of the joints; faint tidemark to the lower corner of the front board (affecting the "LE" in "Doyle") and a small splash near in the fore-edge margin; corners bent with a touch of wear. Binding a little shaken; text block soft with the corners just a little rounded; endpapers faintly foxed and lightly soiled; rear hinge stabilized by gluing the inner margin of the terminal leaf to the rear endpaper; minor over-opening throughout, gatherings U and X slightly sprung with their plates tipped back in; fore-edge of frontispiece stained red; two previous ownership signatures. Still, about very good with a nice overall appearance. A Haycraft Queen Cornerstone. From the collection of Bob Terry.
