Arthur Conan Doyle
Limited Editions Club Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection (8 volumes)
1952. See description and photos. Up for sale is the Limited Editions Club Complete Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle, in 8 volumes: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (number 574 of 1500, 3 volumes, 1950), The Later Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (number 51 of 1500, 3 volumes, 1952), and The Final Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (number 1117 of 1500, 2 volumes, 1952).
