Product description

This edition combines 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' with Arthur Conan Doyle's own favourite Sherlock Holmes stories, and an introduction by his acclaimed biographer Andrew Lycett. The cover design is by Michael Kirkham, one of today's most admired illustrators. This clothbound edition is part of a series of readers' best-loved classics published in fine volumes, produced to the highest standards for under twenty pounds: making it an affordable luxury. Instead of a dust jacket, the decorated cloth covers have a printed illustration wrapping around the book. Coloured page tops, decorated endpapers, meticulous line-by-line typesetting and thick acid-free paper are among the elements that differ from a standard hardback, to embody the virtues of a good book. The result is quality of design and production that adds to the pleasure of reading and makes each book a desirable object in itself. For anyone interested in a fine edition of a favourite work, this is an attractive volume for the bookshelf or an authentic and distinctive present.
