First edition in book form, first impression. The Hound was Sherlock Holmes “comeback” novel after his shocking demise on the Reichenbach Falls stunned his loyal Victorian readership. When first serialised in the Strand Magazine in 1901 it was an “unprecedented success”, with queues at the publisher’s office and throughout the country.

Octavo. Original red cloth, titles and Art Nouveau decoration to spine after a design by Alfred Garth Jones, enlarged on front board incorporating silhouette of hound stamped in black. Frontispiece and 15 plates after Sidney Paget. Spine slightly faded, cloth a little cockled, tips bumped, some foxing to edges of text block and endpapers. A very good copy.

Bibliography: Green & Gibson A26.
