Sign Of the Four

By Doyle, Arthur Conan




From the book:Sherlock Holmes took his bottle from the corner of the mantel-piece and his hypodermic syringe from its neat morocco case. With his long, white, nervous fingers he adjusted the delicate needle, and rolled back his left shirt-cuff. For some little time his eyes rested thought-fully upon the sinewy forearm and wrist all dotted and scarred with innumerable puncture-marks. Finally he thrust the sharp point home, pressed down the tiny piston, and sank back into the velvet-lined arm-chair with a long sigh of satisfaction. Three times a day for many months I had witnessed this performance, but custom had not reconciled my mind to it. On the contrary, from day to day I had become more irritable at the sight, and my conscience swelled nightly within me at the thought that I had lacked the courage to protest. Again and again I had registered a vow that I should deliver my soul upon the subject, but there was that in the cool, nonchalant air of my companion which made him the last man with whom one would care to take anything approaching to a liberty. His great powers, his masterly manner, and the experience which I had had of his many extraordinary qualities, all made me diffident and backward in crossing him.

The Sign of the Four [Lippincott's Magazine]

Doyle, Arthur Conan

Philadelphia, PA: J.B. Lippincott Co, 1890. First edition. Paperback. Very good. Octavo [22 cm] in original wraps, with title page and b/w frontis illustration. Spine missing from wraps, small chips and tears to front wrap, stab holes from previous binding, minor sunning--amateur repair to inner hinge of front wrap; wraps are else very good. Discreet Japanese tissue repair to three of the advertisement pages, else internally pristine. The Sign of the Four; or, The Problem of the Sholtos, pp. 145-223 (pagination continuous from the January issue of Lippincott's Magazine). First appearance of this second Sherlock Holmes story, in which Doyle introduces Holmes' drug habit. First appearing in print in Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887, Doyle's infamous "consulting detective" built upon the foundations laid by Poe and others to create modern detective fiction. Arguably the most depicted fictional detective of all time, Sherlock Holmes remains unsurpassed in popularity over the last century. Scarce in original wraps.
