Dr No - 1st/1st with RARE first state (no dancing lady) binding
Jonathan Cape, 1958 (256 pages): Fine condition example of this very rare (20,000 print run) book. Comprises the rarer first state boards variant (plain black boards with no dancing lady silhouette). Jacket in virtually pristene condition (with the as called-for 'Ian Fleming lettering on spine being black rather than the later state DJs in white). Internally mark-free and free of blemishes. Slight tanning to page block. Beautifully clean back and front. An as-near-as-perfect example of this book as you are likely to see.
