Agatha Christie cover gallery (part 1)

This is another skeletal cover gallery that I intend to create for Agatha Christie. Due to pressure of work, I've not been able to put this together in a timely fashion – I had hoped to have something together for the 125th anniversary of her birth - 15th September. Instead, I'll add more to this framework over the next few days and see how far I can get. Christie has been the subject matter for a fair number of posts here on Bear Alley over the years: quite a few of the Fontana covers have been featured but never in my usual gallery format alongside the same title's Penguin or Pan edition. The comparisons will be interesting.
