9780006111337: Thirteen Problems, The

A facsimile first edition hardback of the Miss Marple books, published to mark the 75th anniversary of her first appearance and to celebrate her new-found success on television.

When The Murder at the Vicarage was published in October 1930, little did the literary world realise that Agatha Christie, already famous for her early Poirot titles, was introducing a character who would become the best-loved female sleuth of all time. The 14 Marple books would appear at intervals over the next 49 years, with Miss Marple's Final Cases published in 1979, three years after Agatha's death.

To mark the 75th anniversary of Miss Marple's first appearance, and to celebrate her renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this collection of facsimile first editions will be the perfect way to enjoy these books in their original form – 12 novels and two short story collections. Reproducing the original typesetting and formats from the first editions from the Christie family's own archive copies, these books sport the original covers which have been painstakingly restored from the best available copies, reflecting five decades of iconic cover design.

Product Description:

When her friends from the Tuesday Night Club visit Miss Marple’s house the conversation often turns to unsolved crimes…

Trying to solve these thirteen mysteries are Raymond West, a young writer, the artist Joyce Lemprière, Dr Pender the clergyman, who claims to know the hidden side of human character, Mr Petherick, a lawyer who is only interested in the logical approach and Sir Henry Clithering, whose experience as commissioner of Scotland Yard speaks for itself.

Then of course there is Miss Marple who has observed enough about human nature to be more than a match for the most perspicacious investigator…


“The plots are so good that one marvels… most of them would have made a full-length thriller.”
Daily Mirror
