* Her name until 1926 when she started using Agatha Christie.

Agatha Christie (1890 - 1976), was a British crime novelist whose books - more than eighty - were the most translated in history, surpassed only by the Bible and the works of Shakespeare. The most famous are "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd", "Murder on the Orient Express", "The Case of the Ten Little Blacks" and "The Clown", in which the famous character Hercule Poirot investigates mysterious murders. It was Agatha's mother who encouraged her, as a child - suffering from a cold and resting - to write a story: it was a revelation of her talent to her and her family.

The content of this letter, directly related to the world of Agatha Christie's literature, is very rare and interesting. In 1969, the author was already concerned about the progressive disappearance of hardcover books, a very current debate due to the new possibilities of the internet.
