Ten Little Niggers

By Christie, Agatha




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:

London: Collins, The Crime Club. 1939. First edition, first printing. First edition, first printing. Publisher’s original orange cloth with black titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding clean, square and bright, the contents lightly spotted to the text block edge otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner’s inscriptions or stamps. Dated 1939 to the copyright page. Complete with the genuinely very good or better rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which remains very clean and bright with a little fading of the red lettering on the spine and a couple of short closed tears. The correct first issue price of 7s 6d net is present to the front flap, as called for. A very attractive example in entirely original condition. Scarce thus. Published in the US (one month later) and UK subsequently as “And Then There Were None”. Considered by many to be Agatha Christie’s finest and indisputably with over 100 million copies sold, one of the world’s best-selling mystery novels. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

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.

Ten Little Niggers

CHRISTIE, AGATHA

London: Collins, 1939. First Edition. Bookplate; light foxing and cloth fading; very good plus in a very good dust jacket with some tears and chips, the most serious of which is a triangular fingernail-sized one at the top of the front panel. A highly politically incorrect title even when published; the dust jacket compounded the sin with its illustration of little black figures with big white lips. The book was published in America as And Then There Were None, and re-issued as Ten Little Indians, presenting problems of its own today. In any event, not only was this one of the author’s best books, it was also made into one of the best films based on her books, starring Walter Huston and Barry Fitzgerald.

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.

Christie, Agatha

London: Collins / The Crime Club, 1939. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition, first printing, second state with no date listed on copyright page. Very Good with light lean to spine, a bit of dust soiling, fading to cloth corresponding to jacket chips, and bumping to page corners. In a Very Good dust jacket with front flap clipped at bottom corner and publisher's price of 4'- net printed left of the clip (assumed second issue); edge wear with chipping heavier at spine ends, rubbing to folds, faint pencil markings to front panel and fading to spine. A controversial title to say the least, published in America and filmed as And then There Were None.

It is widely considered the author's masterpiece.
