    A Near Fine Copy, Inscribed by Ian Fleming

    Ian Fleming. Goldfinger. London: Jonathan Cape, [1959]. First edition. Inscribed by Fleming, "To / Gerald Micklem, / This piece - of / homework! / from / Ian Fleming" on the front free endpaper. Octavo. 318 pages. Publisher's black cloth with blind and gilt stamped front and gilt stamped spine. Spine has a very slight lean and the mildest of bumping to the extremities. Dust jacket has minor darkening along edges and a light stain at top edge of spine. Housed in a beautiful custom clamshell box by The Dragonfly Bindery. The box front reproduces an image of skull with rose from front panel of the jacket in intricate, multicolored leathers. A near fine copy of the seventh Bond novel. The Gerald Micklem in the inscription is quite possibly the famed British amateur golfer and golf administrator.
