After the Funeral.

CHRISTIE, Agatha.

London: The Crime Club,, 1953. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine in black. With the supplied dust jacket. Spine faded. Some spotting along top edge, corners faintly bumped. An excellent copy in the very lightly tanned dust jacket. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Carlo from Agatha. May 1953". From the library of Charlotte ("Carlo") Fisher (1895–1976), Christie's secretary and early amanuensis with whom Christie wrote several major early titles. The method was described by Christie in her autobiography: "Charlotte and I sat down opposite each other, she with her notebook and pencil. I stared unhappily at the mantelpiece, and began uttering a few tentative sentences. They sounded dreadful. I could not say more than a word without hesitating and stopping. Nothing I said sounded natural. We persisted for an hour. Long afterwards Carlo told me that she herself had been dreading the moment when literary work should begin." By this process Christie - or "Missus" as she was known to Fisher - would find her authorial voice. During the difficult period of the breakdown of her first marriage, Fisher was Christie's only friend and confidante. They remained close throughout their lives.
