Recent dark blue morocco, twin morocco title labels burgundy, titles and decoration to spines, roll to boards gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With photogravure frontispiece portrait in volume I. A fine set. The Crowborough edition, limited to 760 numbered sets. Signed on the limitation page by Arthur Conan Doyle in volume one. "The Crowborough Edition was intended to be a complete and definitive edition of the author's works of fiction. [Doyle] was to have revised each book, written new prefaces, and arranged the stories in their final order. Unfortunately he was prevented from doing so by illness and by his other commitments … [The Crowborough Edition] reprints the introductions from the Author's Edition, but otherwise is set from the existing editions without any corrections" (Green and Gibson A 61).
