A rare view of a London scene in Paget's illustrations.

Passage illustrated: “‘There's our man, Watson! Come along! We'll have a good look at him, if we can do no more.’ At that instant I was aware of a bushy black beard and a pair of piercing eyes turned upon us through the side window of the cab. Instantly the trapdoor at the top flew up, something was screamed to the driver, and the cab flew madly off down Regent Street. Holmes looked eagerly round for another, but no empty one was in sight.”
