NotesFirst edition, first impression, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "from Agatha Christie". The novel "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, p. 153).
Octavo. Original orange cloth, spine lettered in black.
Spine cocked and browned with some light splash marks, a couple of small marks to boards, edges rubbed and faintly toned, contents fresh with just a very occasional spot of foxing, remaining a very good copy.
Wagstaff & Poole, p. 153.
