About this Item: Bodley Head, 1921. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. An exceptionally fine first edition of Agatha Christie's debut novel introducing Hercule Poirot. Octavo, original brown cloth without the stains or tears one typically encounters. At the start of the First World War, Christie "returned to the Voluntary Aid Detachment nursing she had taken up and the dispensary work that followed. It was during lulls in the dispensary that she began a detective story. Seeking some point of originality for a sleuth in the Sherlock Holmes tradition she thought of the Belgian refugees in Torquay and Hercule Poirot, retired Belgian policeman evacuated to England, was born, though it was not until 1920 and six unsuccessful trips to publishers that he saw the light of day in The Mysterious Affair at Styles, a book that shows little indeed of the prentice hand" (DNB). "Poirot was created for the reader who identified with an individual detective a private detective who relied on his 'gray cells" (Woellert & Cassiday, 116). "Happily, Poirot richly merited the attention he received. For when he is at the top of his form few fictional sleuths can surpass the amazing little Belgian either for individuality or ingenuity He still comes closer to symbolizing his profession in the popular mind than any story-book detective since Holmes Agatha Christie is easily one of the half-dozen most accomplished and entertaining writers in the modern field" (Haycraft, 131-33). First published in New York and Toronto in 1920. Barzun & Taylor 780. Penciled owner signature. Cheaply printed and bound, surviving copies of this work are almost always found in deplorable condition, due to paper shortages after WW I. This is by far the best copy to come on the market in the last two decades, and should be considered the cornerstone of any serious rare mystery novel collection. The book is internally fresh and free from foxing, with only a small pencil ownership signature. Without the extremely rare Dust Jacket. The book is housed in a custom half marocco clamshell box.

About this Item: John Lane The Bodley Head, 1921, 1921. 1st edition. Hardcover. Original decorative brown cloth, spine edges gently rubbed, the rough-cut pages clean bar a little edge-spotting, one early leaf with very slight edge-wear. Housed in a quarter morocco solander box with gilt spine lettering. Agatha Christie's first book also introduced her famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot. She wrote the novel as a result of a challenge to do so by her sister Madge. It appeared first in the US in October 1920, then in the UK in early 1921. The New York Times thought that, even though it was her first published work, 'she betrays the cunning of an old hand'. This copy is near fine, and very scarce. A Haycraft-Queen cornerstone. Accompanied by a small, folded laid-in sheet of paper signed by the author. Seller Inventory # PSHB7081

About this Item: London. Soft Cover. First Edition. 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.

Cloth is rubbed and worn at extremities, slightly tanned at spine. ; front hinge starting; previous owners ink name and address ( Manitoba) to front paste down.Very good overall. LAID IN is a TYPED LETTER SIGNED (in pen) by the author to a fan in 1972 thanking him for his comments and his appreciation of re-reading of one of her books. Letter is a Royal Post Air Mail Letter. Christie has typed her " Winterbrook House" return address in the appropriate space and again at the top of her reply.

First edition, first impression of Agatha Christie's semi-autobiographical novel, the second written under the pseudonym of Mary Westmacott. Christie's adoption of a pseudonym was an interesting psychological manoeuvre that allowed her license for self-revelation not to be found in her detective fiction or even in her autobiography. Christie even adopted a different handwriting style for presentation copies of the book. Seller Inventory # 108135

About this Item: London: The Crime Club, 1953, 1953. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine in black. With the supplied dust jacket. Spine faded. Some spotting along top edge, corners faintly bumped. An excellent copy in the very lightly tanned dust jacket. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Carlo from Agatha. May 1953". 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. Seller Inventory # 75787

About this Item: Collins (U.K.), 1939. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. AGATHA CHRISTIE - TEN LITTLE NIGGERS (published in the U.S. under the more politically correct title "And Then There Were None"), published by Collins, copyright 1939, First Printing variant state (says "Copyright -- " with no date at bottom right on copyright page and with no references to subsequent printings, lists to "Murder is Easy" on list of Christie books to left of title page, redish orange boards with black lettering on spine, ads for "Hercule Poirot's Christmas" & "Appointment With Death" at rear of book, correct 1st state DJ with generic review for Christie's writing on rear flap and ad for Collins 2/6 Edition series on rear cover and NO price at bottom left corner on front flap (the 2nd state DJ which comes from a 3rd printing (the 2nd printing of this book was printed in the green & yellow "uniform" format") has a 4s price at bottom LEFT corner to front flap - a more difficult place to "clip" so its not uncommon to find a 1st printing book wrapped in a DJ from the 3rd printing). A VERY DIFFICULT BOOK TO FIND IN ITS 1ST PRINT DUST JACKET AS THIS IS ONE OF CHRISTIE'S "TOP THREE" BOOKS IN HER PUBLISHING CANNON OF BOOKS. NOTE - THE LACK OF THE 1939 DATE ON THE TITLE PAGE INDICATES THAT THIS BOOK WAS INTENDED FOR EXPORT SALE (FURTHER CONFIRMED BY THE FACT THAT THE PUBLISHER "PUNCHED" OUT THE 2/6 PRICE ON THE REAR PANEL OF THE DJ). BEFORE THERE WERE COPYRIGHT TREATIES/CONVENTION AGREEMENTS BETWEEN COUNTRIES, PUBLISHER'S OFTEN HAD TO SECURE THE LOCAL COPYRIGHT IN EACH COUNTRY AND IN THE CASE OF THIS BOOK, EITHER DUE TO TAKING TOO LONG TO HAVE THE BOOK READY FOR PUBLICATION OR THE ADVENT OF WWII, THE PUBLISHER DROPPED THE 1939 PRINT REFERENCE ON THOSE BOOKS FROM THE 1ST PRINTING THAT WERE INTENDED FOR EXPORT SALE. Book has no creased page corners, former owner's neat name at top right on ffe otherwise no former ownership markings or used book store marks/stamps/stickers inside, clean endpapers - no tape staining or markings, no foxing to pages, endpapers or outer page edges, barest hint of dusting to top outer page edge only which are otherwise still white (no age darkening), no internal spine splits, no spine lean, tight white pages with sharp corners, no wear to board edges or corners or spine tips, NO spine fade, no stains or soiling to boards, bright red boards, no wear/loss to black spine lettering. EASILY THE NICEST COPY OF THIS BOOK THAT I HAVE EVER HAD FOR SALE. Dust Jacket has vertical nick loss at top right on spine (affecting just the very top portion of "ten" and the right edge of "E" & "S" & tiny chip at bottom right corner on front panel, no other chipping, tearing or creasing, slight wear to spine tip with 'v' losses to spine tip corners, hint of wear to front flap crease (primarily at corners), just a hint of dust soiling noticeable just on the white portion of rear panel, NO SPINE FADE TO RED TITLE LETTERING (common defect with this DJ), no staining or soiling to panels or spine. Overall a N-FINE book in VG+ condition dust jacket (price clipped) of a scarce late 1930s era UK Agatha Christie 1st printing with original RARE 1ST PRINTING DUST JACKET. I have a number of other U.K. and U.S. Agatha Christie 1st printing hardcover books up for sale. Seller Inventory # ABE-1499830214066
