The Hound of the Baskervilles

Arthur Conan Doyle

"Barrymore was crouching at the window with the candle held against the glass. His profile was half turned towards me, and his face seemed to be rigid with expectation as he stared out into the blackness of the moor. For some minutes he stood watching intently. Then he gave a deep groan and with an impatient gesture he put out the light."

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third full-length Sherlock Holmes novel, the best known, and among the top novels of all time. Holmes and Watson visit the Baskerville estate and explore the Devon moors in search of a terrible beast. The beast is part of the Baskerville curse that ended the life of Sir Hugo Baskerville in the 17th century and now it appears to be back, threatening Sir Charles Baskerville this time. This copy is an early American edition from 1902, with eight illustrations by Sidney Paget.
