The Sign of the Four.
London: George Newnes, 1892.. [Detective Fiction]. SECOND EDITION. Octavo (20 x 14cm), pp.[4] 283 [1]. With a lithographic frontispiece by Charles Kerr. In publisher's original red cloth boards, re-backed to style with original spine cloth pasted over. Gilt titles and black border decoration to spine and upper board. Dark brown endpapers supplied. Reading lean, with moderate outer wear and a water stain to the top edge of the upper board. Good. The second of four full-length Sherlock Holmes novels, originally appearing in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine (Feb.1890). Doyle was reputedly commissioned to write the story following a dinner with the editor at London's Langham Hotel. The function was also attended by Oscar Wilde, who would contribute his only novel 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' to the July 1890 issue. Doyle later discussed this 'golden evening' in his autobiography 'Memories and Adventures' (1924).
