The hound of the Baskervilles another adventure of Sherlock Holmes.
London: George Newnes, Limited, : 1902. : 8vo (183 × 117 mm.), pp. [viii], 358, [2], with frontispiece and 15 plates by Sidney Paget. Original red cloth, gilt stamped design with black silhouette with the hound, signed "A[lfred].G[arth].J[ones].". Small mark to bottom edge, very faint sunning to spine and very slight rubbing to head and tail of spine. An exceptional copy. : First edition in book form. The title first appeared in serial format in Strand magazine in 1901-2 and remains the best known of the ever-popular Sherlock Holmes series. The novel appeared after Doyle had killed off his hero in an epic struggle with between Holmes and his bitter foe Moriarty, but a public out-cry ensued and The hound of Baskervilles appeared (with the sub-title ?another adventure of Sherlock Holmes? to create the illusion that the story was from an earlier date) and was met with unprecedented success. Bauman: "First issue, with "you" for "your" on page 13, line 3 and the illustration facing page 76 reversed (as it was originally in the Strand Magazine, October 1901)."
