Strand Magazine, Newnes, 1908. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. Item #1602186
The rare first appearance of this Sherlock Holmes story. Later collected in His Last Bow. Out of the entire collection of Holmes stories by Doyle, this is the only story in which a police inspector (specifically, Inspector Baynes) is as competent as Holmes. Very good in wrappers. The twentieth century Strand magazines are actually much scarcer than the 19th Century copies because the circulation was much smaller by then.
