Too Hot To Handle (Moonraker) Perma Books First Print 1957
A superb example of the first US paperback edition of Moonraker - renamed as ' Too Hot To Handle' by Perma Books, featuring cover art by Lou Marchetti. Very hard to find in good condition, this book is a good-to-fine example, featuring just a tiny amount of spine wear, and a lower right corner bend, and light creases to the back cover. Tightly bound still, internally the pages are clean. The book naturally opens at pp18-19 (see pic), but there are no loose pages. Strong binding, bright and clean, this shows only little minor evidence of reading. A fabulous copy of this very hard to find first print book.
