A couple posts back I wrote about the amazing adventure I had at Elliot's Books. In that post I mentioned a first American edition of The Seven Dials Mystery (1929) by Agatha Christie and how it was out of my price range.
Elliot has since listed the book for sale on his website for $2,750. What makes this book so rare is that the book is in near fine condition with it's original dust jacket in good condition. Click her to see the listing. Most editions of this book have only a facsimile dust jacket.
Some Agatha Christie collector will be over the moon to have this book in his or her collection. I'm content to say I got to hold it for a few minutes.
I haven't read much Agatha Christie and am toying with the idea of reading all her novels in chronological order.
