This volume includes 13 Holmes adventure stories from "The Return of Sherlock Holmes", plus the famous novel, "The Hound of the Baskervilles". With black & white illustrations by Frederic Dorr Steele, Sidney Paget and others (some re-drawn for this edition). --- The text has been corrected and edited by Edgar W. Smith, who sought to provide the essential, original stories, as written by Arthur Conan Doyle. Sandglass flyer laid in (Norwalk, no.III:36R). --- Paper-covered boards feature 'VR' pattern in bullet holes, after the cypher of Queen Victoria, (or Victoria Regina); a nod to Holmes's tendency to " . . . sit in an arm chair with his hair-trigger and a hundred Boxer cartridges and proceed to adorn the opposite wall with a patriotic V. R. done in bullet pocks." NOTE: This volume lacks the black cover bas-relief image of Mr. Holmes, as found on some Heritage Press issuances in this series. Spine in black cloth w/gilt-stamped titling. Slipcase covered in black paper. --- With a little rubbing to cover extremities, else a firmly bound, bright copy.
