About This Item

London: Collins, The Crime Club. 1935. First UK edition, first printing. First UK edition, first printing. Publisher's original orange cloth with black titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth fresh with a small strip of fading to the upper spine tips where the dustwrapper was, at some point, folded down. The contents are entirely complete, clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which has a few short closed tears with associated creasing to the extremities. Correctly priced 7/6 net to the spine (later editions were published at 3/6 net). An exceptional example of a rare Hercule Poirot title to acquire in the correct dustwrapper. A remarkably modern story published in July 1935, the plot involving a flight between Paris and London, a route which didn't actually come into service until later in the same year using converted bombers for passenger aircraft. (Hubin). Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.
