Acerca de


The English photographer Michael Kenna had made a series of haunting landscape studies on the English moors, particularly on Dartmoor, where The Hound of the Baskervilles is set. Thus we felt compelled to make Sherlock Holmes the second detective in our mystery fiction series. In the novel the moor is more than just a backdrop; it is essential to the plot and action. Michael Kenna wrote about his photographs: "I found the reality of the moor to be as Arthur Conan Doyle portrayed it: beautiful but bleak, and subject to volatile changes. The images chosen are deliberately non-specific in terms of time and place, the suggestion of atmosphere being more important to me than literal illustrations." This trade edition was published by North Point Press in 1986. Editor's note "The most atmospheric of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes novels pits the rational and scientific Holmes (and his steady companion Watson) against an unnamed and unknown evil, a mysterious menace that prowls the melancholy moor, a seemingly supernatural power. Only the prodigious powers of Sherlock Holmes could unravel the devious threads that insidiously bind the Baskervilles. Designed in Baskerville type by Andrew Hoyem for this fine Arion Press edition, ornamented with calligraphic initial letters, and featuring fifty-three photographs by Michael Kenna, this superb rendering of Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles captures perfectly the mystery, tension, and melancholic beauty of the moor.

Reseña del editor:

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the tale of an ancient curse suddenly given a terrifying modern application. The grey towers of Baskerville Hall and the wild open country of Dartmoor hold many secrets for Holmes and Watson to unravel. The detective is contemptuous of supernatural manifestations, but the reader will remain perpetually haunted by the hound from the moor.
