Unfinished Portrait.
London: Collins, 1934. Octavo. Original blue cloth, lettering to spine. Without dust jacket. Spine slightly rolled, a touch of browning to spine ends, top edge dusty; an excellent copy in the bright jacket with some shallow chips and nicks to extremities, and short closed tears to head and foot of front panel. First edition, first impression of Agatha Christie's semi-autobiographical novel, and 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.
      [Bookseller: Peter Harrington]
