Sherlock Holmes Short Stories. Ships with Tracking Number! Buy with confidence, excellent customer service!
These books are in good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, spine, and edges of the cover boards. The previous owners name and moto is affixed to the inside of the front cover boards.
