Ten Little Niggers

London: Collins, 1939. First Edition. Bookplate; light foxing and cloth fading; very good plus in a very good dust jacket with some tears and chips, the most serious of which is a triangular fingernail-sized one at the top of the front panel. A highly politically incorrect title even when published; the dust jacket compounded the sin with its illustration of little black figures with big white lips. The book was published in America as And Then There Were None, and re-issued as Ten Little Indians, presenting problems of its own today. In any event, not only was this one of the author’s best books, it was also made into one of the best films based on her books, starring Walter Huston and Barry Fitzgerald.
