How it works


First edition, second impression of Ian Fleming's classic third James Bond novel. Published in the same year as the first impression.

The book is clean with the original contemporary bookseller's ticket at the bottom of the front paste down. Binding clean and the original silver titles still bright. The only defect on this copy is that the spine has lean (see images).

The print run of the second impression was a lot smaller than that of the first impression.

A very seldom-encountered impression of one of the earliest Bond titles. No dust jacket.
