A poor exchange against Mr. Raikes (who makes horribly for self psycho-analysis), but one of the four may find a mark. A Conan Doyle". The recipient was the author and playwright William Babington Maxwell, who wrote the 1929 title "Himself and Mr. Raikes.", which features a young man constantly at conflict with his own, darker side, portrayed as a separate character.

The book is firmly bound in red cloth, lettered in gilt to spine and front board, the extremities are a little rubbed and bumped. The text block is slightly toned and spotted. Loosely retained inside the book are 4 publishers ads, 2 for the Sherlock Holmes Stories. The dust jacket is the original, it is slightly chipped and rubbed with fading to the spine and a few short closed tears. The book is preserved within a custom made solander box. An excellent association copy, lengthy inscriptions from Doyle being uncommon. Seller Inventory # 3769

The Works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.: Arthur Conan Doyle

About this Item: London: Smith Elder., 1903. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Limited Edition. London: Smith Elder, 1903. Author’s Signed Limited Edition. Number 73 of 1000. First Edition, First Issue of the Author's Edition.   The White Company is signed by Arthur Conan Doyle.   Frontispiece + one illustration to each volume both with titled tissue guard. 12 volumes, illustrated, rebound in half black morocco with marbled boards, raised bands, red title lables and top edges gilt.   First edition, English issue, First issue of "The Author's Edition." No. 73 of 1000 copies signed by the author. Black half morocco leather, with gilt tiles to the spine on red labels and marbled boards, top edges gilt. Some occasional light foxing, otherwise a clean and sound set. Top edge gilt all other page edges are hand cut. Some pages roughly handcut. Scarce. Limited to 1000 sets. This is the first [Smith Elder] Edition.   The Author's Edition was a joint publishing venture between D. Appleton of New York and the London firm of Smith, Elder and Company. 510 sets were bound by Smith, Elder and Company. The remaining 490 quires were passed to John Murray when the company was sold; they were re-issued with new title-pages dated 1903 in and after 1917. The author considered this edition of his works to be of great importance: he revised parts, and added notes and a number of special introductions. He remarks in the preface that it had for some time been his ambition to have such a collection: "I have never, however, desired that that edition should be complete. On the contrary, the great charm of such a new departure was that it gave me an opportunity of finally casting off what my more mature judgment told me to be unworthy and of retaining what my conscience approved . . . I have expended all pains in putting these books into their final form, and so I leave them." Because of the author's friendship with Reginald Smith, he agreed to sign the thousand copies of the English issue. He was not, however, prepared to do the same for the American publisher, though he was asked. He made it known that he would only consider doing so for a considerable fee. The English issue also has the further attraction of having two illustrations in each volume rather than one. The Author's Edition was less successful than expected, so no new works were added as had been the original intention, though the American publisher did include The Hound of the Baskervilles."   Condition Report Externally Spine – very good condition – new, twin red title labels. Joints – very good condition. Corners – very good condition. Boards – very good condition – marbled boards.

About this Item: [Printed in Oxford by The Senecio Press for] The Land Press, London, 1988. No. 9 OF 150 COPIES. 273 x 198 mm. (10 3/4 x 7 3/4"). [vi pp.], 239 pp., colophon No. 9 OF 150 COPIES. BOLD GRAY MOROCCO BY JEFF CLEMENTS (signed in colophon) WITH GEOMETRIC BLUE, BROWN MOROCCO AND SNAKESKIN INLAYS separated by dark gray and orange rules, title embossed at tail of smooth spine, all edges silvered. In a dark blue buckram clamshell box with a morocco label. With a hitherto unpublished frontispiece portrait of Holmes and 104 in-text illustrations by Sidney Paget from the original illustrations in "The Strand" magazine. In mint condition. This handsome private press edition of the original 12 "case histories" of the famous sleuth comes in a fine binding described by the binder as providing "a relationship between disorder and discovery," as well as containing "significant symbolic references" in its abstract design. Complete with the illustrations first printed in "The Strand Magazine" from July 1891 to June 1892, the stories here include classic adventures such as "The Red Headed League," "The Speckled Band," "A Case of Identity," and the first Sherlockian tale of them all, "A Scandal In Bohemia." The Land Press commissioned four distinguished modern binders to provide coverings inspired by the contents, and the present copy was bound by a former president of Designer Bookbinders, former head of the Faculty of Art and Design at the University of the West of England from 1984 to 1988, and recipient of an MBE for services to Bookbinding (2007). Jeff Clements (b. 1934) says of his design choices for this work: "Colour is an important factor; blue for clarity of purpose, grey for uncertainty and brown for the spirit of the age in which the stories are set (e.g. panelling, furnishings, clothes and cigars.) The focus of the design is set on the front cover with the oblique intersecting forms disappearing beneath the grey blanket of Victorian fog and including an inset of exotic leather which relates to one story in particular but also the many disguises of Holmes himself. It can be said that the binding provides an atmospheric introduction to these famous stories rather than illustrating a particular aspect."
