About this Item: Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1890, 1890. First appearance of the second Sherlock Holmes story. Original wrappers; some soiling; minor edge wear and chipping; short tear at top left hand corner of the front wrapper; some archival mending along the spine; ownership signature at the top of the front wrapper and at the top of the first page of text; a very good copy; in a custom quarter-morocco clamshell box. Published in both English and American issues, but the American included a special title page opposite the frontispiece, thereby giving it some bibliographical claim to being the first edition. In the summer of 1889, Lippincott's agent met Doyle and Oscar Wilde at a dinner at the Langham Hotel and contracted with each for their next novels. Wilde's was The Picture of Dorian Gray, published in July, 1890. Lippincott's issued The Sign later in various formats (Five Complete Novels, Six Complete Novels), combining it with novels in other issues, and even in a single bound format, an example of which we've only had once. The first English edition was issued later in 1890, and an American piracy was issued in 1891. All books described as first editions are first printings unless otherwise noted.

About this Item: London: Spencer Blackett. 1890, 1890. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in red morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, dark green endpapers, gilt edges. Very occasional spotting to text leaves, an excellent copy in fine binding. With frontispiece by Charles Kerr. First edition. This copy has both internal issue points, "138" on the contents page is incomplete and appears as "13" and "wishes" is misspelt on p.56 as "w shed". However, these issue points are present in both the first and second issue of the first edition, the only way of determining between the two issues is by the binding. The second issue was reissued by Griffith Farran and Company, with the original title page. The covers are also the same except for the imprint at the foot of the spine which reads "Griffith Farran and Cos/ Standard/ Library". As this copy has been rebound it is not possible to distinguish whether it is a first or second issue of the first edition. This copy is bound without the publishers' catalogue found in some first edition copies. Seller Inventory # 48026

About this Item: W. W. Norton & Company, 2006. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. WW Norton Co, United States, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. annotated edition. 273 x 231 mm. Brand New Book with Free Worldwide Delivery. The publication in 2004 of Leslie S. Klinger`s brilliant new annotations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle`s 56 short stories created a Holmes sensation. Here, in this eagerly awaited third volume, Klinger reassembles Doyle`s four seminal novels in their original order, with over 1,000 new notes, 350 illustrations and period photographs, and tantalizing new Sherlockian theories. Inside, readers will find: A Study in Scarlet (1887) - a tale of murder and revenge that tells of Holmes and Dr. Watson`s first meeting; The Sign of Four (1889) - a cinematic tale of lost treasure; the Hound of the Baskervilles (1901) - hailed as the greatest mystery novel of all time; and The Valley of Fear (1914) - a fresh murder scene that leads Holmes to solve a long-forgotten mystery. Whether as a stand-alone volume or as a companion to the boxed short stories, this classic work illuminates the timeless genius of Conan Doyle for an entirely new generation.
