A STUDY IN SCARLET.

DOYLE. ARTHUR CONAN.

Ward, Lock & Co. London. 1888. FIRST EDITION in book form of the first Sherlock Holmes novel and the Author's first book. 8vo. (7.3 x 5.1 inches). Published the year before in Beetons Christmas annual. Green & Gibson A1, a.i. (second impression). Publisher's preface with missprint 'youuger', para 2, line 3. ------- Bound in early (circa 1890's) half vellum with red morocco label, ruled and lettered in gilt. Marbled paper on boards. Plain white endpapers. Bound without the printed wrappers and advertisements. Six line illustrations by Charles Doyle, (the Author's Father) throughout the book. Previous owner name on the title page and some light foxing to the first and last few pages and occasionally on some page margins and the fore edge but overall a very good bright copy throughout. Whilst a copy in original wraps would be preferable, an early binding is the next best thing. A highly desirable true rarity of English literature.

A Study in Scarlet - John M. Keynes' Copy

Conan Doyle, Arthur

London: Ward, Lock, 1891. Published in 1891. Third English Edition, being the first fully illustrated edition. 8vo., pp. 224 + (24) catalogue. Printed on high quality paper. Bound in publisher's quarter scarlet cloth, gilt titles to spine, beige buckram boards titled in red, patterned end-papers. With several black and white in-text and full page illustrations. A very good copy with cracks to gutters. John Maynard Keynes' copy. Some staining and browning to the spine. A little staining to the boards and wear to the edges. A very presentable copy indeed. The second edition has a printed leaf noting the edition as the 'Third Edition, Illustrated'. This is due to Beeton's Annual is listed as the first edition, therefore the 'first' edition of 1888 becomes their 'Second edition' and the second becomes the 'third'. The bibliography as set out above is correct; the Beeton 'edition' being an appearance, and not the first edition in bookform. The same rule applies to other Sherlockian titles such as 'The Sign of Four'.

London: Ward Lock, 1895. (London: Ward, Lock & Bowden Limited 1895). Issued as a supplement of the rare Windsor Magazine Xmas 1895 issue. Illustrated by James Grieg. Sadly the condition is good only. In essence the front cover and last page are detached with some loss to each page and there is an old piece of sellotape on the back page. I believe there should be some adverts after the text. These are not present. The contents are probably good +. Rare
