You Only Live Twice - 1st edition, 1st Impression (2nd state)
Jonathan Cape 1964 (256 pages): FINE condition, first impression, first edition, second state ('March 1964') - with unclipped original jacket. Extremely clean and non-sun-damaged (a fate typical of this particular novel), this example is in very good condition indeed. Tiniest of marks to back of DJ, but barely noticeable, this jacket has the rarely-found delicate hues of the pink peony flower still intact. Note also the virtual absence of any spine fade (another common defect afflicting this particular novel). Coupled with its totally clean text 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.
