    Ian Fleming [ James Bond ]. Casino Royale. London: Jonathan Cape, [1953]. First edition, first printing in first issue dust jacket with prices intact, one of an estimated 3,000 copies printed. Octavo. 218, [2, blank] pages. Publisher's full black cloth, front board and spine stamped in red, dust jacket. Jacket spine a bit toned, some edgewear and a few short tears to jacket (with some light creasing), jacket dampstained at fore-edges of front and rear panel and flaps. Cloth spine and rear panel soiled at bottom, with a small stain on front board near top, some mild rubbing and bumping to binding, some dampstaining to second half of text block mainly on edge (although a few leaves and rear endleaves are dampstained). Skewed. Despite these flaws, this is a near fine copy that shows well. From the James Bond collection of Gary Firuta.
