VERY RARE - SCARCE EDITION
FINE ORIGINAL PICTORIAL BINDING
FIRST APPEARANCE- THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES 


THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES
 
by
ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE

 

The Return of Sherlock Holmes by A. Conan Doyle  

1905 first USA edition/impression


published in New York by McClure, Phillips & Co.  MCMV


Pages: 381

The book is firmly bound in clean original black boards

with the yellow illustrated window silhouette on the front cover.

The spine has faded somewhat but is firmly attached to block and covers.

The text block is slightly age toned though surprisingly with no

foxing whatsoever on any of the pages though they 

have yellowed only very slightly with age, 

the book is complete with all plates, 

has one small inscription on front paper and

the bindings are solid though a band of white tape

was used internally at some time to reinforce the front cover

and the back cover, though attached could do with

with reinforcing in the future, also there are several 

loose pages but all are thankfully present and accounted for. 

The protective tracing paper cover at the front is present but also loose.

The top corner of the page of "lists of illustrations" page has broken off
and the same on other pages but never affecting text or page numbering.


Apart from the above this book is
overall a very nice example and highly collectible book



Please see numerous pictures below to fully asses the book



Please note, only buyers paying with cash can collect from me from me in person from Island Gardens E14 London and will receive a 5%
discount for paying with cash but please text me first on 077808150065
to check my availability for collection before buying as sometimes I am unable to be around due to work commitments.


Many thanks for your interest.
