Gently read, unclipped and not remaindered. Interior is clean and solid. Bright, clean titles to spine. Corners are sharp and square. Small piece of tape residue to fffep. Dust jacket is lightly bumped to extremities with minor shelf wear to show. Rear panel is lightly sunned toward the bottom edge. Laid in is the elusive "Agatha Christie Crossword Puzzle" published in conjunction with the book. It has a moderate vertical crease. A very nice copy of the definitive biographical guide to more than 2,000 characters from the hand of the Master, Agatha Christie.
