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. A new series of Miss Marple editions, stylishly reset and repackaged, and designed to bring the books to a more contemporary readership. Market research shows that two out of three of all fiction readers have read an Agatha Christie book, and more than half want to read her again New Marple series on ITV averaged more than 8 million viewers - more this Christmas! The Agatha Christie partwork was selling 35,000 copies each fortnight, while these are much more attractive and aimed at booklovers. Very collectable and affordable at GBP10.00 each. (Danbury Mint's successful Ian Fleming/James Bond facsimile editions were GBP25.00 each.)
These are the initial eight volumes in what will grow to 24 over two years in Black Dog's new "Agatha Christie Collection." The books are all decent-quality hardcovers for a bargain price. If you're regularly replacing your Christies, gives these more durable editions a try. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
