New York, NY: Street & Smith, no date [circa 1900]. [Sherlock Holmes] PIRATE EDITION. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp. 176; 42 . Publisher's burgundy cloth with gilt titles to spine and black titles to upper. bookplate to front pastedown, and a small red ownership stamp to fly-leaf. Some light offsetting to endpapers and a few small marks to text. Unusually good paper for a pirate edition. Rubbing and toning to spine and bumping to corners; fraying to head and tail of spine. Very good. Yellow fog is swirling through the streets of London and Sherlock Holmes himself is sitting in a cocaine-induced haze until the arrival of a distressed and beautiful young lady forces the great detective into action... Also including two non-Holmes short stories by Doyle — an unusual pairing with this title. Item #57413
