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 plot was summarized by Rosalind Christie on the occasion of Agatha Christie's centenary as a story about "a girl's obsession with her younger sister and the closeness of hate to love, the "burden" in this story being the weight of one person's love on someone else." Agatha Christie wasn't in the habit of inscribing her non-mystery novels; no record of any other contemporaneously signed or inscribed Mary Westmacott books have appeared at public auction. We have five, out of six, of Charlotte Fisher's personal "Mary Westmacott" titles in stock. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 001356

Item Description: Heinemann, London, 1948. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. THE ROSE AND THE YEW TREE. London: William Heinemann, (1948). First Edition. A Very Good copy (light abrasion to front board, endpapers lightly browned, some fox spots to the front edge) in original publisher's cloth, missing the uncommon dust jacket. INSCRIBED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym: "To C. F. from M. W. Nov. 1948." From the collection (book-label to 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." In terms of this particular title, Rosalind Christie wrote of it for her mother's centenary: "In 1947 she wrote The Rose and the Yew Tree. This was a great favourite of hers and mine too. It is a haunting and beautiful story. 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 appeared, we can find no auction records for any other contemporaneously signed or inscribed Mary Westmacott books. We have five, out of six, of Charlotte Fisher's personal "Mary Westmacott" titles in stock. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 001276

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
