About this Item

First Printing. Demy 8vo: [10],272pp. Publisher's black pictorial cloth embossed in bright green, fore-edge untrimmed, wanting the dust jacket. A superior example of this cheaply done wartime production, fine, tight and bright. Wagstaff & Poole, pp. 153-57. Barzun & Taylor 767. First published in London, in 1939, by Collins Crime Club as Hercule Poirot's Christmas. Christie's brother-in-law's "complaint that her murders 'were getting too refined-anaemic in fact' is answered in full in this vintage offering, which brings together two of the favourite devices of the thriller writer of the period, the country-house party and the locked-room murder, to stunning effect." (Wagstaff & Poole) In The New York Times Book Review (12 February 1939), Isaac Anderson concluded, "Poirot has solved some puzzling mysteries in his time, but never has his mighty brain functioned more brilliantly than in Murder for Christmas." N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB1580
