London: Smith, Elder, and Co., 1908. [Short stories] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (20 x 14cm), pp.; 372; [4 of advertisements]. Publisher's red cloth, gilt titles to spine and upper board, gilt vignette to upper board. Frontispiece illustration. Internally clean with a couple of small spots to edge of text block, a little browning to endpapers, no inscriptions, minor shelfwear, cloth lightly handled; a very good copy indeed. Strange and horrible tales, mostly with an eerie nature, although two are ingenious enough to involve the great detective; there is a cameo appearance from Sherlock Holmes, p.187, with deductions in 'The Lost Special'. Also features 'The Man with the Watches', an apocryphal Holmes story. Item #53723
