The Man with the Golden Gun.London: Jonathan Cape, 1965 Stock Code: 144574
First edition, first impression. The Man with the Golden Gun was Fleming's final full-length Bond novel, published eight months after his death. It was adapted into a film of the same name in 1974, starring Roger Moore.
This copy is in the second state binding as usual, without the gun design blocked in gilt on the front cover, which proved too expensive and was dropped after the first 940 copies had been sent abroad.
Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt, green endpapers (Gilbert's binding A, no priority). With the dust jacket.
A fine copy, contents clean and unmarked, in the near-fine dust jacket, tiny spray of foxing to head of front panel, else sharp and bright.
Gilbert A13a (1.2).
