The Hound Of the Baskervilles

By Doyle, Arthur Conan


Find copies of The Hound Of the Baskervilles

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859. After nine years in Jesuit schools, he went to Edinburgh University, receiving a degree in medicine in 1881. He then became an eye specialist in Southsea, with a distressing lack of success. Hoping to augment his income, he wrote his first story, A Study in Scarlet. His detective, Sherlock Holmes, was modeled in part after Dr. Joseph Bell of the Edinburgh Infirmary, a man with spectacular powers of observation, analysis, and inference. Conan Doyle may have been influenced also by his admiration for the neat plots of Gaboriau and for Poe’s detective, M. Dupin. After several rejections, the story was sold to a British publisher for £25, and thus was born the world’s best-known and most-loved fictional detective. Fifty-nine more Sherlock Holmes adventures followed. Once, wearying of Holmes, his creator killed him off, but was forced by popular demand to resurrect him. Sir Arthur—he had been knighted for this defense of the British cause in his The Great Boer War—became an ardent Spiritualist after the death of his son Kingsley, who had been wounded at the Somme in World War I. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died in Sussex in 1930.

London: George Newnes, 1902.First edition in book form (first serialized in the Strand Magazine between August 1901 and April 1902). Small octavo (7 1/4 x 4 3/4 inches; 184 x 122 mm.). [8], 358, [1], [1, blank] pp. With sixteen plates (including frontispiece) by Sidney Paget.Original scarlet cloth pictorially stamped in gilt and black (in a design by Alfred Garth Jones) and lettered in gilt on front cover and pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on spine. Spine slightly faded, minor blistering to cloth on covers near joints. Minimal foxing to edges, free endpapers slightly browned from pastedown glue. Otherwise an excellent copy, with the gilt bright and fresh. The Hound of the Baskervilles “was based on an idea given to [Doyle] by Bertram Fletcher Robinson, who was a nephew of Sir John Robinson and a correspondent for the Daily Express during the Boer War. The two men struck up a friendship when travelling back on the same ship from Cape Town. They spent four days together on a golfing holiday at Cromer in March 1901, and it was then that Robinson mentioned the legend (possibly of the Black Hound of Hergest associated with the Vaughan family of Hergest Court in Herefordshire). Doyle told his mother: ‘Fletcher Robinson came here with me and we are going to do a small book together “The Hound of the Baskervilles”—a real creeper’…The serial publication was an unprecedented success. It was the only occasion in the magazine’s history that a seventh printing was needed to meet the demand, and the queues at the publisher’s offices and throughout the country were extraordinary” (Green and Gibson, p. 130).Green and Gibson A26a.

The Hound of the Baskervilles

DOYLE, ARTHUR CONAN

London: George Newnes. 1st Edition. Very Good. FIRST EDITION in original cloth of the most celebrated of all the Sherlock Holmes adventures. With illustrations by Sidney Paget. "The immortal words 'Mr. Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!' conjure fear as few others in the twentieth-century canon. Based on local legends of black dogs and vengeful ghosts, and called the greatest mystery ever penned, The Hound of the Baskervilles (1902), a tale of Gothic horror set in the fantastic moors of England, enthralled readers of the Strand Magazine (in which it was serialized) with its strange warnings and clues and clever host of suspects. Watson shines here, both as the narrator and as the principal investigator until Holmes sweeps down on the scene to ratchet up the drama one more notch. Widely acknowledged to be one of the century's first bestsellers, the novel did little to quell the disappointment of readers who longed for a resolution of the question of whether Holmes- killed off in 1893's "The Final Problem"- had somehow cheated death at the hands of the villainous Professor Moriarity. The public had to wait until 1903, when "The Empty House" was published, for news that Holmes was firmly back in the land of the living" (Leslie S. Klinger, The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes). The Hound of the Baskervilles appeared in the Strand Magazine in monthly parts from August 1901 to April 1902; this first book edition appeared in 1902 before the final installment appeared in the Strand. London: George Newnes, 1902. Octavo, original cloth gilt. Complete with frontispiece and 15 full-page illustrations by Sidney Paget. Armorial bookplate of Gilbert A. Tonge. Later bookplate of Henry Rouse Viets, celebrated neurologist, medical historian, and member of Harvard's Faculty of Medicine for 36 years. A little bit of wear to the extremities, a few spots of bubbling to cloth (as usual), very faint ring on rear panel. Gilt on cloth sharp and bright. An exceptionally nice copy of a difficult book to find in collectable condition.
