Thrilling Cities.London: Jonathan Cape, 1963 Stock Code: 143819
NotesFirst edition, first impression. Originally published as two series of articles for the Sunday Times, first from 24 January to 28 February 1960 and then from 31 July to 4 September 1960, Thrilling Cities was the product of a five-week, all-expenses-paid trip to visit the world's most exciting cities. Travelling to 13 cities, from Hong Kong to Monte Carlo, Fleming gathered material that would furnish much of the backdrop and research for the five Bond novels and seven short stories that would follow.
Octavo. Original white cloth-backed grey flecked boards, spine lettered in gilt, black endpapers, top edge black. With the dust jacket.
A fine copy in near-fine, lightly toned jacket.
