The Mysterious Affair at Styles

CHRISTIE, Agatha

A FINE COPY

CHRISTIE, Agatha The Mysterious Affair at Styles

Bodley Head, 1921.

First edition. Original brown cloth with black titles and Art Deco design. Top edge stained blue. A near fine copy with beautifully clean cloth and distinct lettering and design. There are a couple of small production blemishes to the rear cover and some minor fraying to part of the rear joint, but beyond that looks barely handled. Internally fresh and clean and most unusually free from foxing. An exceptional copy.

The author's first novel, which sees the first appearance of M. Hercule Poirot. Due to the wartime restrictions this book was made from poor quality stock which browns very easily. The boards are also very fragile with the majority of copies surviving only in a disbound or heavily repaired state. Copies as well preserved as this one are very rarely encountered.
