The Mysterious Affair At Styles
John Lane The Bodley Head, 1921 - 1st edition. Hardcover. Original decorative brown cloth, 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'. This copy is near fine, and very scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
