Ten Little Niggers

CHRISTIE, Agatha

CHRISTIE, Agatha Ten Little Niggers

Collins, 1939.

First edition. Original orange cloth in green pictorial dustwrapper. A very good copy indeed, slightly cocked with dusty page edges in a very good dustwrapper indeed which is bright and unfaded, with vertical creases to the spine and back panel and trivial wear to the spine ends and a couple of closed tears internally mended.

Ten Little Niggers is certainly the greatest story that the Crime Club has ever published. We believe it may come to be considered the greatest crime problem ever devised in fiction.
Agatha Christie has always shown her preference for the closed" murder problem, in which the possible suspects are limited to a small and definite group of persons. In the present case ten people are invited to a mansion on Nigger Island, off the coast of Devon, by a host that fails to appear. They are completely cut off from civilisation - cut off from every thing but each other and their inescapable shadows of their own past lives..." (Blurb)
A highlight of Christie's extensive output, often considered to be her best and most ambitious work. The uncomfortably controversial title was reprinted as 'Ten Little Indians' and in America the book was published as 'And Then There Were None'.
