The Hound of the Baskervilles
August 1901–April 1902
Shown here is the first of the nine issues of the Strand in which the Hound first appeared. Readers who had been devastated by Sherlock Holmes’s apparent death in the 1893 story “The Adventure of the Final Problem”were jubilant over his revival. There were long lines outside the magazine’s offices, some people are said to have offered bribes for advance copies, and for the first and only time, the Strand needed a seventh printing.
