Sherlock in (and on) The Strand again

The January 1927 Strand sports another striking Holmes cover I've not seen before. I'm glad I stopped myself leafing through all the 1920s volumes when I got them because oterwise I wouldn't have nice surprises like this. The illustration below it is a classic Sherlock-and-Watson image with a great pull-out quote. I think this final illustrator of Holmes, Frank Wiles, is rather unfairly ovvershadowed by the original, Sidney Paget.
