The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

London: George Newnes Ltd, 1895. Forty-first thousand. [vi], 343pp. Original pale green craquelure-patterned endpapers. Contents clean: foxing to prelims. Early ownership name rubber-stamped to front free endpaper, partially offset to pastedown. Stained inner hinges professionally repaired with Japanese tissue. In the original smooth blue cloth titled in gilt and with the small Newnes street scene in black to the front. Boards fairly bright, spine rather darkened: upper corners slightly blunted, string-pull indentations to edges of front board, and top edge of spine has benefited from a small indiscernible professional repair. Has 'cucaine' for cocaine at p.133. A very nice square copy. Very Good.
