This is an auction for THE GRAND TOUR: AROUND THE WORLD WITH THE QUEEN OF MYSTERY, by Agatha Christie.

Edited by Mathew Prichard. review:

“THE GRAND TOUR includes both previously unpublished letters from Agatha Christie to her mother and photographs taken by Christie. These, along with postcards, newspaper cuttings and other memorabilia, document her 1922 journey to South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and Canada. Christie accompanied her first husband, Lieutenant-Colonel Archie Christie, financial advisor to the Dominion Mission of the British Empire Exhibition, on a ten-month trip designed to encourage participation in England's upcoming trade fair. Ironically, her mother encouraged her to make the trip, pointing out, "If you're not with your husband, if you leave him too much, you'll lose him. That's especially true of a man like Archie." Four years later, Christie asked his wife for a divorce in order to marry a younger woman. Christie's devastation at the collapse of her marriage was so profound that she seldom mentioned Archie. THE GRAND TOUR fills in that gap in her biography by offering a revealing glimpse at the romanticism that characterized their early relationship. Christie was thirty-two years old at the time of the journey and had just published her second novel.”
