About this Item

Typescript of an unpublished play, "Someone At The Window," adapted from the short story "The Dead Harlequin." Stitched wraps with text typed on the front cover (including title and author name, the name and address of Christie's agent, L. E. Berman, and marked "4th copy" though we find no other copies or editions -- as far as we can tell, unique); 220x295mm; approx. pp. 100, typed on the recto only, with underlining in red. Covers chipped and torn along the edges; contents are fine. "The Dead Harlequin" was first published in the March 1929 issue of Grand Magazine. About a year later, it was published in the UK by William Collins & Sons, and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company, as part of the short story collection, "The Mysterious Mr. Quin." The short story features the familiar characters Mr. Satterthwaite and Mr. Quin, as they unravel a mysterious death at Charnley House, finding it reflected in a painting exhibited at the Harchester Galleries more than a decade after the occurence. The unpublished play offered here (which has a scene set at the Mayfair Galleries in June 1934), changes the setting and the characters, and twists and expands and contracts the earlier short story into a remarkably different performance.
