First and only edition published by The Tragara Press in 1978. This is the scarce hardbound edition limited to only 15 copies on saunders cream laid paper and signed by Kingsley amis. This is copy number 14. It also still retains its original acetate jacket. The book is in near fine condition. All pages are clear and clean. There is one tiny mark to the top of the binding. The acetate jacket has a small chip to the top of the binding. A very scarce signed book. 


The Sherlock Holmes story first appeared in Playboy earlier in the year and was then expanded by the author and published in small numbers. Amis is writing as John Watson in this short story with illustrations by Elspeth Sojka.
