And Then There Were None is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie and first published in the United Kingdom by the Collins Crime Club on 6 November 1939 under the title of Ten Little Niggers and in the United States by Dodd, Mead and Company in January 1940 under the title of And Then There Were None. During the novel, ten people, who previously committed murder but escaped due to technicalities, are tricked into coming onto an island. Even though the guests are the only people on the island, they are all mysteriously murdered in the manner of the nursery rhyme, one by one. The UK edition retailed at seven shillings and sixpence (7/6) and the US edition at $2.00. The novel has also been published and filmed under the title Ten Little Indians. It is Christie's best-selling novel with 100 million sales to date, making it the world's best-selling mystery and the seventh most popular book in all time. And Then There Were None has been adapted into several plays, films, and a video game.

TEN LITTLE NIGGERS

CHRISTIE, Agatha

1939. CHRISTIE, Agatha. TEN LITTLE NIGGERS. London: The Crime Club, [1939]. Small 8vo., cloth in dust jacket. First English Edition. Undoubtedly Christie's most politically-incorrect title by today's standards. The title was changed to "Ten Little Indians" when the book was published in America and the design of the dust jacket was also changed. The title was again changed to "And Then There Were None" for the 1945 movie version, which is probably the best film adaptation of any Christie novel. Very Good (minor soil covers); in an attrractive dust jacket that has some professional resotration, particularly to several former chips and to the spine ends. Enclosed in a custom-designed clam-shell box depicting a Negro baby on the front cover. An attractive copy of a scarce title. $9000.00.

CHRISTIE, AGATHA

London: Collins, 1939. First Edition. Very good or better; in a good or slightly better price-clipped dust jacket with chips, tears, soiling and creasing. The unfortunately titled book was published in America as And Then There Were None, and re-issued as Ten Little Indians, which title is problematic itself these days. In any event, not only was this one of the author’s best books, it was also adapted into one of the best films based on her books, starring Walter Huston and Barry Fitzgerald.

Ten Little Niggers

CHRISTIE, Agatha

Collins, 1939. 1st edition. Hardcover. Original orange cloth in very good condition. Usually the spine and boards are badly faded, but on this copy there is only a little paling at the foot, over the publisher's logo, and a tiny patch at the crown, and down a narrow bit of the top front edge, so the cloth is in much better condition than is normally the case. The pages and endpapers are also extremely clean, with no foxing at all. In sum, a very nice copy of the first printing of one of Christie's most famous mysteries.

TEN LITTLE NIGGERS (Three Volumes)

Christie, Agatha

London:: Samuel French, Ltd./Samuel French,. (1944-68). First UK Samuel French "acting edition," first edition thus. Near fine in gray-green, printed paperwraps. Together with a U.S. Samuel French acting edition entitled TEN LITTLE INDIANS, which was "revised 1946" but lists plays on the back cover from the 1950's, so assume much later (handwritten "#18" on front cover, otherwise fine in paperwraps). And last but not least, a well-used, sixth-impression, Fontana paperback edition from August 1968, showing that the Brits, who first used the politically incorrect title in 1939, were undeterred and continued using it 30 years later.
