The naughty side of Sherlock Holmes

The cover of this 1950s paperback edition of Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles is sooooooo odd, so '50s, so pulp, and so, well, naughty, that it's one of my favorites.

What a delightfully different cover! Since I just finished re-reading the novel yesterday, I immediately recognized the scene being portrayed. ("Stapleton" tied up his wife because he no longer trusted her not to expose his plans to Sir Henry.)
