    Inscribed First Edition of Thunderball

    Ian Fleming. Thunderball. London: Jonathan Cape, [1961]. First edition. Inscribed by Fleming, "To / the kind lady / called Reynolds / who was such / a help! / from / Ian Fleming" on the front free endpaper. Octavo. 253 pages. Publisher's black cloth with blindstamped front and gilt stamped spine titles. Cloth is lightly rubbed with softly bumped corners. Front endpapers show some foxing and top page edges have just a hint of foxing. Dust jacket has some darkening along edges and spine. Previous owner's name written on rear inner flap. There is a one-eighth-inch tear on the top edge of the jacket at the rear joint. Housed in a beautiful custom clamshell box by The Dragonfly Bindery. The box front reproduces an image of the knife and skeletal hand from the front panel of jacket in leathers and other materials. A better than very good copy of the ninth Bond novel.
