Odhams Press

First Edition Book  

Includes Witness For the Prosecution

1933




The Hound of Death and Other Stories is for sale. This is the rare first edition of The Hound of Death published by Odhams in 1933, not by Agatha Christie’s publisher Collins which was only later published by them in 1936.


This is the first time that an Agatha Christie book was published in the UK but not in the US, although the Agatha Christie short stories appeared in later US collections of Agatha Christie’s work.


The original publisher’s purple binding with black lettering to the spine are in Very Good condition with fading, and light creasing to the spine where the book has been opened and read; very light marks, very slight corner knocks; slight knocks to the top and bottom of the spine and very slight shelf lean.

The Hound of Death

The Mystery of the Blue Jar

The Strange Case of Sir Arthur Carmichael

The Call of Wings

The Last Séance
