A first edition, first printing published by Collins in 1953. A very good book which has one neat name to the head of the front endpaper and a light stain to the head of the spine. In a very good+ unclipped wrapper which has some light restorative repair to the spine tips and corners. Presents well.
Like several of Christie’s novels (e.g., Hickory Dickory Dock and One, Two, Buckle My Shoe) the title and substantial parts of the plot reference a nursery rhyme, in this case “Sing a Song of Sixpence”. Miss Marple travels to the Fortescue home to offer information on the maid, Gladys Martin. She works with Inspector Neele until the mysteries are revealed.
