London: Collins; The Crime Club, 1951. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine / Fine. Item #010476
8vo., 256pp. Beautiful First Edition of this non-mystery spy adventure featuring Victoria Jones, a short-hand typist with a craving for adventure and was drawn from Christie's own travels to the middle east. Square, tight and clean throughout with fairly only some gentle bumping to heel. Equally attractive unfaded, unclipped dust-jacket, (8s,6d net), has a touch of toning but is fresh and bright with no creases or chipping. Remarkably well-preserved. A simply gorgeous collectable copy and quite difficult to find in such high grade.
