The A.B.C. Murders

Christie, Agatha

New York: International Magazine Company, 1935. First edition. Wrappers. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the FIRST APPEARANCE IN PRINT of Agatha Christie's "The A.B.C. Murders", a work of Crime Fiction featuring Hercule Poirot, Arthur Hastings, and Chief Inspector Japp, published as an abridged version in the November, 1935 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine and featuring illustrations by Frederic Mizen. This TRUE FIRST APPEARANCE was followed by a UK serialization published in the UK's Daily Express in sixteen parts running from Monday, November 28 to Thursday, December 12, 1935, with each installment having an illustration by Steven Spurrier. Neither the US first publication nor the subsequent UK serialization contained chapter divisions. Both publications were abridged, with the US first appearance being far more complete than was the UK serialization, which serialization -- as opposed to the first American publication in Cosmopolitan -- totally omitted Captain Hastings' Foreword, omitted most of chapters 7 and 20, and omitted chapters 26, 32, and 35 in their entirety -- the UK first appearance thus, with its other abridgments, altogether omitting almost 40% of the text. The novel was then published in book form without abridgment or omission in the UK by William Collins & Sons on January 6, 1936 and in America by Dodd, Mead and Company on February 14, 1936. This copy is in Very Good condition with modest edge wear, some wear to the spine (which shows some minor loss as well as one tape repair running from the spine edge of the front wrapper to the spine edge of the rear wrapper, and a few minor spots of foxing the the leading margin of some pages). A Very Good copy of this QUITE SCARCE TRUE FIRST APPEARANCE IN PRINT of Agatha Christie's "The A.B.C. Murders". QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
