Arthur Conan Doyle – Adventures of Sherlock Holmes [with] The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes – First UK Editions – 1892-1894 Newnes
Newnes 1894, 1892. Two volumes, both first editions. Original light and dark blue cloth with gilt lettering and Strand Library design on upper covers and gilt labels on spine. A very good set. ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ a very good copy (gutters strengthened, one small name to the rear of the endpaper, general rubbing to the edges, boards a little dulled). Has the first Issue point wit the "Street sign blank on the front cover" with the first state uncorrected text "cucaine" for "cocaine" on page 133, and the misprint Miss "Violent" Hunter on page 317. ‘The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes’, a near fine copy without inscriptions (small blindstamp to the top of the endpaper, gutters very god indeed, some rubbing to the corners). A much nicer set than is usually encountered.
