The Man With The Golden Gun:1st/1st - with RARE copper foil lettering
Jonathan Cape 1965 (221 pages): FINE condition. A quite simply exquisite example of Ian Fleming's final full-length novel, featuring crisp clean almost bleach-white pages that have absolutely no aging to them at all. This is an all-round superior book and jacket, in flawless condition, with a vibrant unclipped 1st impression jacket showing no sunning at all. This is one of the finest examples you will see, with it featuring absolutely no marks to the inner pages at all and a clean, white page block. The book is square and tight, with still-crisp guillotined edges that signify virtually no sign of being thumbed. Adding to its uniqueness, this also features copper-stamped foil lettering to the spine's boards - considered to be the least common of the gold, while silver and copper variants. Just 5,127 were stamped in bronze out of the total print run of nearly 82,000 [Gilbert].
