From Russia With Love 1st/1st
Jonathan Cape 1957 (253 pages): Fantastic condition, RARE 1st/1st example (one of just 14,700 copies). Laminated boards have preserved this jacket in excellent, undamaged, clean, and unblemished condition. An intriguing find: London Borough of Hackney library stamp, indicating a library copy, but page block features trimmed top and bottom pages, making it demonstrably shorter than a standard book and more akin to advance binding variants. Pages are in excellent condition - minimal age related tanning, with clean internal pages without inscriptions or any markings and just some showing with occassional marks and blemishes to page extremeties. A highly affordable opportunity to own this coveted 1st/1st book, in stunning overall condition.
