What Our Customers Say...

Description

Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce

'And Then There Were None' was first published in the US in January 1940 by Dodd, Mead and Company, who for this later reprint partnered with Grosset & Dunlap. They did so in order to outsource publishing of later editions while extending the income life of a title. Grosset & Dunlap's partnership with Dodd began in the 1920s, and continued into the early 1940s.

In this chilling classic mystery, eight people arrive on a small, isolated island off the Devon coast, each having received an unexpected personal invitation. Their numbers dwindle in a series of murders, and they must discover who among them is the killer.

With two contemporary inscriptions to the front free endpaper, the first undated and reading 'Uncle Ellwood H. Thompson from Luella' and the second dated Christmas, December 25th 1942.

Condition
