A Conan Doyle - The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes together with The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, George Newnes, 1892 & 1894

Two lovely aged books owned by the late Richard Dalby.  Both books with gilt edges.  Text is firm and clean.  Original pale and dark blue cloth respectively.  I believe these books to be First editions because page 317 is the spelling mistake calling Violet, Miss Violent Hunter.  Page 133 should have the word cocaine but reads cucaine.  Beautiful illustrations of days gone by. 

Condition:  Good for the age but the boards have rubbed and faded.  Corners are worn and bent on both books.  Marks on some leaves.  In the Adventures book there is a small tear in outer margin to page 163, and page 69 a corner crease.  Pencil mark on endpaper in The Memoirs.  But overall 2 great books.  

Weight 2250g.  Pages  317 & 279.
