Illustration for Arthur Conan Doyle's “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” p. 357.

Passage illustrated: “‘Dr. Mortimer, I will be much obliged to you if you will call upon me here, and it will be of help to me in my plans for the future if you will bring Sir Henry Baskerville with you.’

“‘I will do so, Mr. Holmes.’ He scribbled the appointment on his shirt-cuff and hurried off in his strange, peering, absent-minded fashion. ”
