Murder on the Orient Express - Agatha Christie 1934 - Published for The Crime Club Ltd. by W. Collins Sons & Co Ltd, London - First Edition A finely bound first edition of this legendary title. One of the greatest locked-room mysteries, with one of the most original solutions.

A crowning point in Christie's career, and probably her most high profile title, helped to that prominence by the success of the 1974 film of the same name, featuring among its cast stage and screen luminaries such as Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins, John Gielgud, and Ingrid Bergman, the last of whom won an Oscar for her performance in the film. About to be adapted again (2017) with Kenneth Branagh directing and starring as Hercule Poirot, together with Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Derek Jacobi, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
  Dame Agatha Christie, Lady Mallowan, DBE (1890 - 1976) - the first of the really distinguished women writers in the field of detective fiction.
