This handsome book was published in 1900. You can actually feel the embossed design on the front as well as Doyle’s name in gold. It is a faded red but it was likely once a lustrous scarlet. According to my research, this gem did not come with a dust jacket but there were several versions of the same book published around the same time. The UK editions were also red. I’m a huge fan of Arthur Conan Doyle and have several copies of his books. This was another fantastic find at one of many book fairs that I have attended throughout the years. A little worn on the edges but otherwise in fine condition.
