[Christie (Agatha)], “Mary Westmacott”. Unfinished Portrait

£1,250

New York, Doubleday Doran, 1934,

First US edition. 8vo. Original cloth. Dust-jacket.

Agatha Christie’s semi-autobiographical novel, the second written using the pseudonym of Mary Westmacott. Christie’s adoption of a pseudonym was an interesting psychological manoeuvre that allowed her license for a level of self-revelation not found in her detective fiction or even in her autobiography.
