    The Uncorrected Proof Copy of
    You Only Live Twice in the Proof Dust Jacket

    Ian Fleming [ James Bond ]. You Only Live Twice. London: Jonathan Cape, [1964]. Uncorrected Proof, one of 500 copies printed. Octavo. 256 pages. Publisher's printed wrappers, proof copy dust jacket (with typewritten "Proof Only" notice on front flap). Jacket a bit taller than the book, so there is creasing at the upper edge of jacket with a visible line running the entire width of the jacket. Jacket spine browned, headcap of jacket spine chipped with loss, some noticeable creasing to joints and flap folds, some other light wear to jacket. Wrappers a bit browned at edges, some creasing and light wear to spine, minor occasional soiling in text, faint creasing to lower corner of rear wrapper. Skewed. Still, a near fine copy of a rare and fragile item. From the James Bond collection of Gary Firuta.
    Gilbert A.12.a.
