Description

    Ian Fleming. The Man with the Golden Gun. London: Jonathan Cape, [1965]. First edition. Octavo (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. Spine ends bumped; The golden gun on the front cover is quite bright, with only one tiny spot of oxidation. Endpapers with some faint tape residue; previous owner's neat printed name on front free endpaper. Dust jacket spine panel a bit toned; occasional light rubbing. A bright, nearly fine copy. One of 940 copies printed with the gilt-stamped gun on the front cover. As per Gilbert, the gilt-stamping proved a bit too costly for the entire run of over 46,000 copies, so it was applied to only 940 copies, which were destined for sale in Commonwealth countries, including South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Kenya; in essence, this is a "trial" binding. Gilbert A13a (1.1)
