A rare, surviving page of the original manuscript for The Hound of the Baskervilles has sold for £313,000. ($423,000)
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle released the famous Sherlock Holmes tale in 1902, reviving the fictional detective he killed off eight years earlier.
Pages of his manuscript were offered to dealers as part of the book's extensive publicity campaign.
However, since Doyle wrote on acidic paper, most have disintegrated over time.
