    Description

    Ian Fleming. The Man with the Golden Gun. London: Jonathan Cape, [1965]. First edition. Octavo (7.375 x 5 inches; 187 x 125 mm). 221, [3, blank] pages. Publisher's black cloth, first state with large gun design stamped in gilt toward the lower-center of the front board, spine lettered in gilt with publisher's device in gilt at foot; all edges trimmed; endpapers printed with green and white fiber pattern. In original dust jacket, designed by Richard Chopping. Boards lightly rubbed with a couple light, whitish blemishes to the rear board and a thin brownish curved line to the front board (above the golden gun); bottom corners bumped; crown slightly pushed. Dust jacket edges just a trifle worn at edges of folds; small closed tear to interior of front panel near joint fold; price-clipped. A near fine copy with virtually no oxidation to the front board gilt. The thirteenth James Bond book. One of 940 copies with the gilt-stamped gun design, produced before it became evident that the cost was prohibitively expensive to complete the print run. According to Gilbert, this is effectively a trial binding that was rejected in favor of less expensive alternative. Most copies shipped to Commonwealth countries. Gilbert A13a (1.1).

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
