This is an auction for THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES Arthur Conan Doyle.

From Wikipedia:

"THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES is the third of four crime novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Originally serialised in The Strand Magazine from August 1901 to April 1902, it is set largely on Dartmoor in Devon in England's West Country and tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound . . . Sir Charles Baskerville, a baronet, is found lying dead among few trees in the grounds of his country house, Baskerville Hall. The cause of death is ascribed to a heart attack. Fearing for the safety of Sir Charles's nephew and only known heir, Henry Baskerville—who was coming to London from Canada to claim his inheritance—Dr James Mortimer travels from Devon to London, and appeals for help to Sherlock Holmes. Mortimer explains to Holmes and Watson that the Baskerville family is said to be afflicted by a curse. He reads a description of the origin of the curse, as written down by a descendant of one Hugo Baskerville, who had lived two centuries earlier. According to this old account, Hugo Baskerville became infatuated with a yeoman's daughter, kidnapped her, and imprisoned her in his bedchamber. She escaped while he was talking with his friends. A drunken and furious Baskerville offered to give his soul to the Powers of Evil if he could only overtake her. This Baskerville, aided by his friends and hounds, rode after the girl onto the desolate moor. Some time later, Baskerville and his victim were both found dead . . . "
