[WITH:][Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. A DAUGHTER'S A DAUGHTER. London: William Heinemann, (1952). A NEAR FINE copy (spine faded due to red cloth) in original dust jacket (lightly used). INSCRIBED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym: "Carlo, with love from Mary Westmacott" [With:] [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. THE BURDEN. London: William Heinemann, (1956). First Edition. A Very Good or better copy in original publisher's cloth, which has been married to a price-clipped FINE ORIGINAL DJ. INSCRIBED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym: "To Charlotte, with love from Mary Westmacott." [With:] [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. ABSENT IN THE SPRING. London: Collins, 1944. First Edition. A Very Good copy married to a Very Good example of the scarce original publisher's dust jacket (price-clipped), ASSOCIATION COPY. From the collection (book-label to each front paste-down) of Charlotte "Carlo" Fisher (1895-1976). Charlotte Fisher, initially hired to serve as nanny to Christie's daughter Rosalind, was pressed into service as a part-time shorthand secretary during the earliest days of the author's career. To quote from Christie's autobiography, Charlotte Fisher was "friend and secretary and governess and dogsbody and everything else for many years. [She] is still one of my best friends." The six "Mary Westmacott" novels (of which we offer five) were those which Agatha Christie wrote to explore feelings that had no place in her mystery tales. Quoting Christie's daughter Rosalind at the time of her mother's centenary in 1947: "The Mary Westmacott novels have been described as romantic novels but I don't think that is really a fair assessment. They are not 'love stories' in the general sense of the term, and they certainly have no happy endings. They are, I believe, about love in some of its most powerful and destructive forms." Agatha Christie wasn't in the habit of inscribing her non-mystery novels; until Carlo Fisher's copies were discovered, contemporary presentation copies were unknown and we can find no auction records for any other contemporaneously signed or inscribed Mary Westmacott books. Here we have five "Carlo Fisher" copies, all with her book-label and four of which are either signed or inscribed. A unique opportunity for the Christie collector to say the least.

Item Description: London: Odhams Press Limited, 1933, 1933. Octavo. Original purple cloth, titles to spine in black. With the supplied dust jacket. Spine faded and rolled, covers unevenly faded, extremities faded, with spotting to edges and some to margins of early and late leaves; a very good copy in the chipped and creased but overall bright dust jacket. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Carlo, from Missus". From the library of Charlotte ("Carlo") Fisher (18951976), 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. Bookseller Inventory # 75776

Sir Leonard and his wife Katharine were good friends of Christie and her second husband, the archaeologist Sir Max Mallowan. Mallowan's archaeological career began as an assistant to Woolley at the excavations at Ur in southern Iraq, and through this friendship and tutelage Christie met Woolley's wife Katharine, on whom the character of Louise Leidner in Murder in Mesopotamia is purportedly based. The book features Christie's alter ego, Ariadne Oliver, and Poirot. Published in the US in the same year. Wagstaff & Poole p. 205. Bookseller Inventory # 117902

Item Description: London: The Crime Club, 1971, 1971. Octavo. Original red boards, titles to spine in silver. With the supplied dust jacket. Spine very slightly rolled, spine and top edge of boards faded, faint spotting to endpapers. An excellent copy in the rubbed and marked dust jacket. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Carlo, with love from, Agatha, Oct. 1971." From the library of Charlotte ("Carlo") Fisher (18951976), 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. Bookseller Inventory # 75819
