8vo, pp. 306 – advertisements at rear. Original red boards, lettered in gilt. Edges uncut. Frontispiece by FrankWiles. Offsetting to endpapers, and some foxing to the preliminaries, title page and early pages of text. Corners bumped, some marking to boards, spine a little faded and with some wear to spine ends. Binding a little shaken, but holding firm.

First UK edition, published three months earlier in the US. The final Sherlock Holmes novel.

Frank Wiles, who provides the frontispiece, drew many of the illustrations for Holmes’s appearances in The Strand magazine. Doyle thought Wiles came closest to the Holmes likeness he had always imagined — which, if Wiles’ work here is any guide, was very much like Basil Rathbone.

A very presentable copy.
