From Russia With Love: 1st Edition 1st Impression
Jonathan Cape 1957 (253 pages): An exquisitely presented example of this numerically scare early Fleming title (less than 15,000 1st impression copies were printed). Often bedeviled by severe browning to the DJ; brittleness and substantial paper loss, this is a rare UNCLIPPED example (13s 6d) with exceptionally clean and complete jacket. Noteworthy for vibrant colours and minimal spine discolouration, this correct first impression jacket sets off a superb book that has as-new blemish free and crisp, white pages. A stunning book with a white page block and ageless internal pages. No marks, foxing, spotting or any internal blemishes whatsoever. A rarity amongst rarities.
