£85.00

First paperback edition, first printing. Published by Penguin in London, 1948. This is a very good copy. The soft cover is slightly toned on both panels and with some wear along both sides of the spine. The text blocks are immaculate and free from foxing. It is free from previous owners ink. Crease to front panel. Overall, this is a very good copy marred by the front hinge separation. Becoming very scarce.
The form of the novel is unusual, combining first-person narrative and third-person narrative. This approach was previously used by Agatha Christie in The Man in the Brown Suit. In The A.B.C. Murders the third-person narrative is supposedly reconstructed by the first-person narrator of the story, Arthur Hastings.
