Scarce, distinguished portrait of the crime fiction pioneer

Vintage matte-finish 4 x 5.75 portrait of Conan Doyle in profile, by Elliot & Fry of New York, affixed to its original 8 x 11 photographer's mount, signed on the mount in black ink, "With cordial remembrance, Arthur Conan Doyle, Ap. 13/13." Also signed below the image in pencil, "Elliot & Fry." In fine condition, with a professionally repaired upper left corner to the mount. In 1913, Doyle would publish the second book in his 'Professor Challenger' series, The Poison Belt, and the oft-anthologized short story, 'The Horror of the Heights.' A rare portrait benefited from its immaculate condition.
