What Our Customers Say...

Description

Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce, With Dustwrapper

Undated; dated 1942 via the list of titles to the dust wrapper rear wrap.

A scarce edition of Christie's work, in the publisher's original price unclipped dust wrapper.

'Sad Cypress' was first published in the US in 1940 by Dodd, Mead and Company, who for this later reprint partnered with Grosset & Dunlap. The two publishing houses regularly collaborated, 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.

This novel was the first novel in the Poirot series to be set at least partly in a courtroom, with lawyers and witnesses exposing the facts underlying Poirot's solution to the crimes.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding, with unclipped dust wrapper. Externally, excellent, with only a touch of shelf wear to back strip tail.
