A handsome set, signed by the author

First complete collected edition, number 268 of 760 numbered sets signed by the author in volume I, very handsomely bound.

The Crowborough Edition - named after the Sussex town where Doyle's home, Windlesham, was located - has double the number of volumes of the Author's Edition of 1903. Doyle had already signed sheets for it but his illness and death on 7 July 1930 prevented him seeing final publication of the work, and so it belongs to that select category, the posthumous signed limited edition. The introductions are reprinted from the Author's Edition, and the text is set from the existing editions without any corrections.
