About this Item

The hand-typed manuscript of an uncollected and hitherto unpublished Poirot story. The manuscript is 92-pages long and is bound in yellow card covers held together by 3 large staples overlaid by blue tape. There is a pale blue label on the front cover upon which has been typed in dark blue type: ***/ THE GREENSHORE FOLLY/ By/ AGATHA CHRISTIE/ ***. The manuscript is un-dated but is definitely pre-1956. On the front cover is an embossment from Ethel Christian Limited (typewriting, shorthand and duplicating), 36-38 Southampton Street, Strand, W.C.2. Temple Bar 2904. On the inside cover there is a small red label (with black lettering) from Ethel Christian Limited with her address details in W.C.2. On the outside of the manuscript there is a small piece of paper attached (with typing on the verso) that says: GREENSHORE FOLLY original short story. Basis for novel DEAD MAN S FOLLY. Short Story GREENSHAW S FOLLY substituted for story above. The Greenshore Folly is referred to in several Agatha Christie bibliographical lists and is a detective novella featuring Hercule Poirot which was expanded in 1956 into the full-length novel, Dead Man s Folly. The Greenshore Folly is not to be confused with the entirely un-related Miss Marple Story Greensh aw s Folly which was published in The Adventures of the Christmas Pudding in 1960. The Greenshore Folly is one of the rarest Agatha Christie manuscripts to have appeared on the market in many years. 20,000. Bookseller Inventory # 355490711760
