An early copy of this series of Sherlock Holmes cases, being:
The Adventure of a Scandal in Bohemia
The Adventure of the Red-Headed League
The Adventure of a Case of Identity
The Adventure of the Boscombe Valley Mystery
The Adventure of the Five Orange Pips
The Adventure of the Man with the Twisted Lip
The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
The Adventure of the Speckled Band
The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb
The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor
The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet
The Adventure of the Copper Beeches
Poor. Just about a reading copy. As mentioned, the book lacks the title page and the binding is heavily rubbed with a lean to the spine. The inner binding is in fair condition but the rear hinge is cracked. However, the stories and illustrations are complete and with careful handing, it can still be read...
