  1. First edition, first impression; 2 vols, 8vo; half titles to both volumes, as called for, 2 pp. publisher's ads at the end of Vol. I, 16 pp publisher's catalogue at end of vol. II correctly dated June 1857, Wesley's bookbinder's label to rear paste down of the first volume, all primary issue points; publisher's purple cloth, elaborately tooled in blind to all boards, titles to spines gilt, cream coated endpapers, hinges just a little tender, spines inevitably somewhat faded but a stunning copy, entirely unsophisticated condition and a qenuine rarity thus; housed in an early twentieth century red cloth, solander box

  2. First edition, first impression; author's presentation copy, with inscription to title page, 8vo, publisher's tan boards, titles to spine gilt; with the dust jacket: an excellent copy in the somewhat frayed and rubbed dust jacket.

  3. First edition, first impression; author's presentation copy, with inscription to title page; 8vo; publisher's red boards, titles to spine gilt; with the dust jacket: a superb copy in the minimally faded dust jacket.

  4. First edition, 2 volumes, first title in first issue state with blank street sign to vignette of upper board. Large 8vo, all edges gilt, both volumes illustrated throughout by Sidney Paget. Publisher's light blue and dark blue cloth gilt respectively. Spines very lightly rolled, gilt to spines perhaps a little rubbed BUT a distinctly superior set of the definitional volumes of Holmseian short stories.

  5. 30 volumes (complete); 8vo; variously illustrated in black & white by George Cruikshank, G. Cattermole, Robert Seymour and 'Phiz' (Hablot Knight Browne) and others, varying degrees of foxing to most of the preliminary and terminal pages, occasional spotting elsewhere but in the main, bright; contemporary half calf over cockerel paper covered boards, matching endpapers and all edges similarly marbled, spines with very fine gilt, rubbed at extremities, minor abrasions to some edges, otherwise a very good, original set.

  6. First edition, sole impression, inscribed by the author; 8vo, (18 x 12.2 cm); scattered light foxing; original grey wrappers, titles to front in black, a little rubbed, a little dusty, perhaps a touch of repair at the head of the backstrip, otherwise a very good copy; [4], 100, [2]pp.

  7. 12 vols, sml. 8vo (180 x 120 mm); engraved vignette title-pages in red and black, illustrated frontispiece and plates in all by various artists, a few spots to lower margin of frontispiece in vol. vii, otherwise near fine; near-contemporary half-leather binding with raised bands and floral gilt designs to spine, marbled boards and matching endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, as published, spines uniformly faded, a little rubbed and bumped at extremities, otherwise very good.

  8. First edition, first impression; 8vo; frontispiece and 5 plates by the author. Publisher's red and black, snakeskin cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the Waugh-designed dust jacket. Spine a little rolled, very light spotting to the fore edge, and excellent copy in the somewhat rubbed sand sunned dust jacket with some trivial loss at two corners. Importantly the title lettering on the the spine is entirely legible. Uncommon thus.

  9. First edition, first issue; 8vo; publisher's grey-black cloth with blindstamped skeletal hand on upper cover, spine lettered in gilt; dust-jacket by Richard Chopping, price-clipped, small clear tape marks to verso, a little rubbed at extremities, otherwise very good and internally fine.

  10. Small 8vo (160 x 110); engraved vignette title-page by Stopford A. Brooke; near-cotemporary full green morocco, inlaid with red carnations to covers, gilt-panelled dentelles, lined in ivory moire, all edges gilt, small, light stain to lower, outer corner of front free lining, with offsetting to following page, otherwise a most handsome volumes and internally fine.
