    The Rare Corrected Proof of Dr. No

    Ian Fleming [ James Bond ]. Dr No. London: Jonathan Cape, [1958]. Corrected proof. One of only 100 copies printed, but surviving copies are rare. Octavo. 256, [2, blank] pages. Publisher's printed wrappers echoing the later dust jacket artwork and blurbs, with folding flaps. Spine toned and rolled, some wear to joints and spine edges, some light edgewear and a short tear to panels, joints for flaps slightly worn (front flap has a tear at the lower edge and has probably been re-attached at some point). Light wear to edge of text. Skewed due to spine roll. Still, a very good copy of a rare and fragile item. From the James Bond collection of Gary Firuta.
    Gilbert A.6.a.
