Christie, Agatha
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe.
Collins Crime Club, London, 1940. First edition of Christie's classic Hercule Poirot murder mystery. Octavo, original cloth, advertisements at rear. Near fine in the rare original dust jacket which is in very good condition. Uncommon in this condition, as the dust jacket usually has restoration. Commencing with the death of Poirot's dentist, the plot of Christie's One, Two, Buckle My Show develops into a tale of blackmail, dual identity, and murder. It was the first of the Poirot novels to reflect the pervasive gloom of the Second World War, and one of Christie's most overtly political novels. "It's a real Agatha Christie thriller: exceedingly complicated in plot, briskly and compactly simple in narrative, with a swift course of unflagging suspense that leads to complete surprise" (Kay Irvin, New York Times Book Review). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
