You Only Live Twice - 1st edition, 1st Impression (1st state)

Jonathan Cape 1964 (256 pages): FINE condition, first impression, first edition, in the rarer FIRST STATE  (ie not 'March 1964')- with unclipped original jacket. An extremely clean example of a book that tends to dirty and brown very easily. This jacket has the rarely-found delicate hues of the pink peony flower still intact. Note also the virtual absence of any DJ spine fade (benefited by this DJ being the varient featuring thicker, more heavy-weight paper - Jon Gilbert p392). Coupled with minimally sunned page block and completely clean and unblemished internal pages, this is an example that is seldom found in such good condition. A  beautiful example of a book that so commonly gets very grubby-looking.
