Doyle, Arthur Conan - The Hound of the Baskervilles

Toronto, George N. Morang, 1902. First Canadian edition, issued with sheets supplied by the U.S. publisher, McClure, Phillips. A very scarce issue of only 2,504 copies (compared to 25,000 of the first British edition and 70,000 of the first American edition). A previous owner's signature is on the front endpaper, else a fine, bright copy, with just minor fading of the white ink on the spine.
