Throwback Thursday - The Hound of the Baskervilles

My throwback for today happened while I was waiting out traffic this afternoon in Half Price Books.  I've been keeping an eye out for a new copy of Dorian Gray since my current one is in two pieces.  Only I haven't had much luck until I ran into a couple of gems in Half Price.  So I thought I'd share The Hound of the Baskervilles (my favorite Sherlock Holmes story) edition today!

Publisher: Pulp! The Classics (this edition)
Original Release: April 1902
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle

A desolate moor, a diabolical dog, and some inbred locals—Sherlock Holmes is really up against it. With the help of his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson, Holmes pieces together a mystery that has captured the imagination of readers across the decades—all while practicing a serious coffee and cocaine habit.

There is a pretty good chance that I may squealed when I saw these covers!  A couple of people might have given me odd looks because my first reaction was to take a photo to send one of my friends who shares my love for the Classics.  I included the link to the site where you can order all of the books they currently have available.

What's your favorite of the Classics?
