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.

About this Item: John Lane The Bodley Head, 1921, 1921. 1st edition. Hardcover. Original decorative tan cloth, with design and lettering in black, 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'. A very sharp copy, very scarce, and a Haycraft-Queen cornerstone. Accompanied by a small, folded laid-in sheet of paper signed by the author. Seller Inventory # PSHB7087
