Description

This elegant gift edition presents one of Sherlock Holme's greatest cases, presented with an ornate gold-embossed cover design and gilded page edges.

The Hound of the Baskervilles is rated as Conan Doyle's best full-length Sherlock Holmes story. Set on Dartmoor it pits Holmes and his faithful assistant, Dr Watson, against a deadly adversary. The specter of the giant hound said to haunt the moor provides a sinister undertone to Holmes investigations into the sudden death of Sir Charles Baskerville and his attempts to protect Baskerville's heir, Sir Henry.

Fast-paced and brilliantly plotted, The Hound of the Baskervilles is a shining example of the timelessness of truly great story-telling.

ABOUT THE SERIES: Arcturus Ornate Classics are beautifully bound editions of iconic literary works across history. These compact, foil-embossed hardbacks are printed using deluxe ivory paper and make the perfect gift.

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a writer and physician. Born in Edinburgh in Scotland, he began writing short stories while studying medicine. His first work featuring his famous literary creation, (the detective Sherlock Holmes), A Study in Scarlet, was published in 1886. Relentlessly curious about a vast range of subjects, his interests were reflected in the vast array of knowledge that Sherlock Holmes exhibited in his stories. Conan Doyle died at the age of 71 and is buried in Hampshire.
