Fleming, Ian Dr No , London: Jonathan Cape and The Book Club, 1958.

First Edition. Very Good/Very Good. FIRST EDITION Bound in the publishers original yellow boards with black title lettering to spine this would appear to be the first edition of this classic James Bond title issued by The Book Club and possibly published in the same year as the first Cape edition published in 1958. The 248 pages have no inscriptions and are tightly bound. There is some damage to the corner of page 59 which has affected a small part of the text. Book sits solid and square with all hinges strong. The lightest signs of handling otherwise the binding is in near fine condition. Housed in the enigmatic Pat Marriott designed dustwrapper with publishers printed price intact on front inside flap. Unique in that the famous dustwrapper artwork is exactly the same as the Jonathan Cape first edition making this scarce thus. Light general wear and chipping to the edges with light signs of handling otherwise a very presentable example. Protected in a removable archival booksleeve to preserve its condition. Photographs of the book and the dustwrapper are available on request. This is not the Jonathan Cape first edition but with the identical dustwrapper artwork and 1958 year of publication it is possibly the next best thing. An overall presentable alternative to the Jonathan Cape first edition presented at a fraction of the price. (Book ref. 000676 )  £ 79.00
