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