Book Description: London George Newnes, 1892. The Fine "Ellery Queen" Copy DOYLE, A[rthur] Conan. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. London: George Newnes, 1892. First edition, first issue with no street name on the front cover, "Violent" for "Violet" on page 317. Large octavo (9 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches; 235 x 160 mm). [4], 317, [1, printer’s imprint], [2, blank] pp. With 104 illustrations by Sidney Paget in the text. Provenance: Detective story writers "Ellery Queen" (Manfred Lee) and "Barnaby Ross" (Frederic Dannay) names in ink on half-title. Original light blue cloth over beveled boards. Front cover and spine blocked and lettered in gilt and black. All edges gilt. Gray flower and leaf endpapers. Small ink initials to front free endpaper. Front hinge professionally and invisibly repaired, back hinge starting but firm. A slight bit of shelf-wear to top and bottom of the spine. Some light foxing to a few preliminary and final pages. Otherwise a near fine copy, exceptionally clean and bright. Housed in a tan cloth clamshell. "Rarely has a character so quickly established itself on the popular imagination as did Sherlock Holmes in the latter half of 1891." (Green & Gibson). "An avid reader of detective fiction since childhood, Dannay often discussed with Lee the possibility that they should write their own novel in the style of the erudite mystery writer, S. S. Van Dine. In 1928, using the name Ellery Queen, the two entered McClure's magazine novel-writing contest and, to their surprise, won. Before the work came to print, however, and before Dannay and Lee received their $7,500 prize money, the magazine folded. Fortunately the cosponsor of the competition, publisher Frederick A. Stokes, stepped in and in 1929 published The Roman Hat Mystery, which promptly sold 8,000 copies and thereby launched both the character and the "author" Ellery Queen." (American National Biography).

Book Description: London George Newnes, Limited, 1902. First Edition "Hound" in the Original Cloth DOYLE, A[rthur] Conan. PAGET, Sidney, [illustrator]. The Hound of the Baskervilles. Another Adventure of Sherlock Holmes. London: George Newnes, 1902. First edition, first issue in book form (first serialized in the Strand Magazine between August 1901 and April 1902), with "you" for "your" on page 13, line 3. Small octavo (7 1/4 x 4 3/4 inches; 184 x 120 mm). [8], 358, [1], [1, blank] pp. With sixteen black and white plates (including frontispiece) by Sidney Paget. Original scarlet cloth decoratively stamped in gilt and black (in a design by Alfred Garth Jones) and lettered in gilt on front cover and decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt on spine. A few old ink sketches to front free endpaper, dated "1902". Overall, a near fine copy. In a custom red cloth slipcase. The Hound of the Baskervilles was based on an idea given to [Doyle] by Bertram Fletcher Robinson, who was a nephew of Sir John Robinson and a correspondent for the Daily Express during the Boer War. The two men struck up a friendship when travelling back on the same ship from Cape Town. They spent four days together on a golfing holiday at Cromer in March 1901, and it was then that Robinson mentioned the legend (possibly of the Black Hound of Hergest associated with the Vaughan family of Hergest Court in Herefordshire). Doyle told his mother: ‘Fletcher Robinson came here with me and we are going to do a small book together "The Hound of the Baskervilles"—a real creeper’.The serial publication was an unprecedented success. It was the only occasion in the magazine’s history that a seventh printing was needed to meet the demand, and the queues at the publisher’s offices and throughout the country were extraordinary" (Green and Gibson, p. 130).

A lovely unrestored copy. Green & Gibson A10a. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the first collection of short stories of the adventures of his character Sherlock Holmes, an eccentric detective who relies on his powers of logic to solve crimes. Originally published serially in the Strand Magazine beginning in July 1891, the "adventures" in this volume include some of Doyle's earliest most beloved stories, including "A Scandal in Bohemia," "The Adventure of the Red-Headed League," and "The Adventure of the Crooked Man," among others. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is followed by The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, which contains the author's intended final appearance of his fictional detective in "The Death of Sherlock Holmes;" when fans protested Holmes' demise, Doyle revived Holmes with the 1901 The Hound of the Baskervilles and went on to publish two final short story collections.

Book Description: George Newnes, Limited, London, 1892. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Sydney Paget (illustrator). Sydney Paget. Hardcover. FIRST EDITION, mixed state. This collection of short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) ensured his lasting popularity and fame. It includes such classics as "Scandal in Bohemia," "The Red-Headed League," and "Speckled Band." It was followed in 1894 by a second compilation, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. This volume is a mixed state: the front cover has a black and white illustration with a banner, "The Strand Library." The street sign is not blank. The end papers are the variant light orange peacock design. Page 317 has the uncorrected "Miss Violent" rather than "Miss Violet." Bound in the original blue cloth with gilt title and author to spine and front cover. Fraying to spine edges and beveled board edges, bumping and rubbing but still in nice condition. The hinges have been expertly restored. Interior pages are clean and bright except for what appears to be a small cigarette (or Calabash pipe?) burn affecting the bottom margins of pages 282-289. Page 285/286 has an actual burn hole. Housed in light blue half morocco slipcase. 317 pages. LIT/072009. Bookseller Inventory # 21930
