  • Having just found this site and joining, I, too, am trying to complete my collection and would appreciate someone sending me the Excel spreadsheet discussed in this forum. If you would private message me, I will provide my email address.  Thank you all.

    Hello - 
    I, too, have recently begun collecting the Bantam editions of Agatha Christie's works!  I was very lucky to get 67 of the titles together last year (for only $100!!!) and just today purchased a further 8 unique titles.  I'm pretty excited to have 75!! 
    Would someone be able to share the spreadsheet of all the titles with me?  I would really appreciate it!  email is [email protected]

    At this late date, is it possible to get the complete list of titles (125), including the alternate titles? I have owned a large collection of Christies for many years, and I made it my mission to read through all of them after sorting through duplicates and comparing them to what was supposedly a master list. I found that I owned many more than that list contained, so started searching for a better site. I found this one and would love to get my list corrected so I can start looking for the missing ones. Thanks for any help you can give!

    I thought I had the entire collection of the Bantam Agatha Christie books but am now thinking I am missing some.  I don't have 125 and I do have the alternative titles for those that were published with both the US and UK titles.  Would love to have the infamous list I have been reading about.
  • Bantam's Agatha Christie Mystery Collection - Wow!  What a source of unending frustration it has been.  Aside from seeking the list of 125 titles, does anyone know how these books were marketed?  Does anyone have a photo's of the bookends or medallion that was offered with this set?
    Please help save my sanity and my 'little gray cells.'
    Thank you.

  • ckittingerckittinger Manchester, USA
    I realize that I am a year late joining this post, but if there's is anyone still out there who has the complete list of 125 titles, could you send it please?
  • These are the 82 books I have in order of publication date. I'm not interested in the alternate titles that were published in the U.K. But I will have to compare mine to the list published on this thread to see what I'm missing:

    In answer to D. Pensak's question regarding how these books were marketed, I recall getting the solications directly in the mail from Bantam Books.  This was back in the early 1980's.

    Can I get a complete list of the bantam hardcover Agatha christies mystery books
  • OscarGuyOscarGuy Springfield
    I am coming to this post very much later than everyone else, but I would appreciate a list. I had started collecting them back in the 1990s before money got tight, so I only ended up with only 14 of them. SO, I'm a long way away from every completing this, but I'd appreciate a complete list if possible. Who knows, I could get lucky one day.
  • ThomasThomas Doha, Qatar
    I would appreciate it if someone would send me the spreadsheet, also.  Thanks in advance.  [email protected]
  • lsduthlerlsduthler Donna TX USA
    For those interested in a list of characters, “The Agatha Christie Who’s Who” by Randall Toye should be of help. I purchased it new in 1982 and have enjoyed using it. 
  • Like others, I'm needing a complete listing off all the books published by Bantam.  I owned all of those books at one time, then gave them away -- now I'm trying to reclaim my assortment.    thanks much:  [email protected]
  • I have a complete listing of the books written by Agatha, with alternate titles -- obtained by compiling lists from several web sources.  It is concise, in order by the detective:  Poirot, Miss Marple, Tommy & Tuppence, and sorted as to whether it is a book or a collection of stories.
    Currently I'm reading the short story book:  The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories, published in 1997 and containing stories she wrote in the 1920s and later.

  • @Peter
    I have been trying to put together a comprehensive list of the Agatha Christie novels in the Bantam Book collection. As there is some confusion as to how many books there are, my list may not be complete, but I have searched on a number of websites to ensure it is as full as possible. My list runs to 98 books and is rather long to post here, can I point you to my Blog which has the list, and hope it meets your needs.

    Thank you for your additional information regarding the Bantam books. I have read the article and will use it to enhance the information I already have. My search on eBay USA has found 98 books; I note that the discrepancy between the 88 books declared in the article and the 98 I have found copies of, is the fact that there are 88 stores printed under UK titles and a further 10 non-UK titles, printed under USA titles (although they are the same story with possible minor character alterations). I need to discover why some Bantam books are printed in Blue Leatherette - these appear to library copies that individuals are selling.
