The first American edtion of Murder on the Orient Express renamed for the US market: Murder in the Calais Coach.

The title of Murder in the Calais Coach was used to avoid confusion with the 1932 Graham Greene novel Stamboul Train, which had been published in the United States as Orient Express.

This is a remarkable copy - a fine book in a near fine jacket.

First edition, first impression, with the exceedingly rare first state dustjacket. Near-fine with a couple of bumps and minor shelf wear. The DJ is in remarkable condition. A strong investment piece.

 Published by Dodd, Mead & Co., New York, 1934.
