Find copies of Ten Little Niggers

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.

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.

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 (Four Volumes)

Christie, Agatha

London:: Collins/Crime Club. (1939-68). First edition with light stain to page fore edge, general wear, and two small spots on front cover; in a nice facsimile dust jacket. Together with the first London acting edition by Samuel French (1944); a U. S. Samuel French edition entitled TEN LITTLE INDIANS (noted as "revised 1946," but with plays on the back cover from the 1950's, so assume much later); and last but not least, a well-used Fontana paperback edition from August 1968 (the sixth impression), showing that the Brits, who first used the politically incorrect title in 1939, were undeterred and continued using it 30 years later.

The jacket is now in a protective mylar cover. The attached scans give a good indication of the book's appearance, and further scans are available on request. . Hard Cover. Good/Very Good.
