Item Description: London: The Crime Club, 1939, 1939. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine in black. White mark to spine, some fading to spine, top edge of boards and rear cover. An excellent, tight copy with bright clean leaves. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To dear Carlo, Xmas 1938, from, Agatha Christie". From the library of Charlotte ("Carlo") Fisher (1895–1976), Christie's secretary and early amanuensis with whom Christie wrote several major early titles. The method was described by Christie in her autobiography: "Charlotte and I sat down opposite each other, she with her notebook and pencil. I stared unhappily at the mantelpiece, and began uttering a few tentative sentences. They sounded dreadful. I could not say more than a word without hesitating and stopping. Nothing I said sounded natural. We persisted for an hour. Long afterwards Carlo told me that she herself had been dreading the moment when literary work should begin." By this process Christie - or "Missus" as she was known to Fisher - would find her authorial voice. During the difficult period of the breakdown of her first marriage, Fisher was Christie's only friend and confidante. They remained close throughout their lives. Bookseller Inventory # 75786

Item Description: London & New York, 1930. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. GIANT'S BREAD. NY: Doubleday, Doran, 1930. First American Edition, first printing. A Very Good, firm copy in original publisher's cloth, illustrated title labels to spine and front cover. SIGNED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym. [With:] [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. THE ROSE AND THE YEW TREE. London: William Heinemann, (1948). First Edition. A Very Good copy in original publisher's cloth. INSCRIBED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym: "To C. F. from M. W. Nov. 1948." [With:] [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. THE BURDEN. London: William Heinemann, (1956). First Edition. A Very Good or better copy in original publisher's cloth, which has been married to a price-clipped FINE ORIGINAL DJ. INSCRIBED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym: "To Charlotte, with love from Mary Westmacott." [With:] [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. ABSENT IN THE SPRING. London: Collins, 1944. First Edition. A Very Good copy married to a Very Good example of the scarce original publisher's dust jacket (price-clipped), ASSOCIATION COPY. From the collection (book-label to each front paste-down) of Charlotte "Carlo" Fisher (1895-1976). Charlotte Fisher, initially hired to serve as nanny to Christie's daughter Rosalind, was pressed into service as a part-time shorthand secretary during the earliest days of the author's career. To quote from Christie's autobiography, Charlotte Fisher was "friend and secretary and governess and dogsbody and everything else for many years. [She] is still one of my best friends." The six "Mary Westmacott" novels (of which we offer five) were those which Agatha Christie wrote to explore feelings that had no place in her mystery tales. Quoting Christie's daughter Rosalind at the time of her mother's centenary in 1947: "The Mary Westmacott novels have been described as romantic novels but I don't think that is really a fair assessment. They are not 'love stories' in the general sense of the term, and they certainly have no happy endings. They are, I believe, about love in some of its most powerful and destructive forms." Agatha Christie wasn't in the habit of inscribing her non-mystery novels; until Carlo Fisher's copies were discovered, contemporary presentation copies were unknown and we can find no auction records for any other contemporaneously signed or inscribed Mary Westmacott books. Here we have five "Carlo Fisher" copies, all with her book-label and four of which are either signed or inscribed. A unique opportunity for the Christie collector to say the least.

Item Description: John Lane, The Bodley Head, London, 1922. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 20 x 13 Cm. The author's scarce second book featuring the sleuths Tommy and Tuppence who feature in three other Christie novels and one collection of short stories; the five Tommy and Tuppence books spanning Agatha Christie's writing career. Upon publication of the first edition it was reviewed by The Times Literary Supplement (26 January, 1922), as "a whirl of thrilling adventures". It stated that the characters of Tommy and Tuppence were "refreshingly original" and praised the fact that the "identity of the arch-criminal, the elusive "Mr Brown", is cleverly concealed to the very end". Newly expertly rebound in full green morocco in the style of the original binding (original boards supplied) with gilt spine & front cover titles. There are two rubber stamps on the blank preliminary and the blank final pp indicating passage through The London Library in Melbourne but no other library marks. The text has spotted foxing throughout and the ragged outer edge is original and has not been planed. 312 pp plus 4 pp ads, the first for Christie's The Mysterious Affair at Styles. Signed in ink by Christie on the half-title and dedicated to Max Coleman. Inscribed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 011587
