The Spy Who Loved Me.London, Jonathan Cape, 1962 Stock Code: 141584
NotesFirst edition, first impression. The Spy Who Loved Me is the only Bond book to be written in the first person, presented as the testimony of a 23-year-old Canadian woman with whom Bond has an ill-fated affair. In furtherance of this pretence, Vivienne Michel gets a spurious credit on the title page as co-author. A film adaptation was produced in 1977, starring Roger Moore.
Octavo. Original dark grey cloth, spine lettered in silver, dagger design to front cover blind stamped with silver, red endpapers. With the dust jacket.
Double-page spread illustration p. 6-7.
A near fine copy in near fine dust jacket.
Gilbert, A10a (1.1).
