The Man with the Golden Gun | 1965, fine James Bond first edition.

£800.00 GBP £1,000.00

A fresh and highly collectible first edition example of The Man with the Golden Gun, the twelfth and final novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series and the thirteenth Bond book overall (followed by Octopussy and The Living Daylights).

This has the second state binding (the first being the scarcest recognised discreet state of any book - less than 1000 copies published. Learn more here.)

First edition, first impression, second state (without the gilt gun stamped on the front cover). Original black boards with gilt spine lettering. The binding is tight and square with no lean. Green patterned endpapers. Inside the book is as new with the pages remarkably fresh and white. The original dust jacket has bright colours and no toning with the correct issue point of 18 s net price on front flap. Easily the best example a collector could ask for.

Published by Jonathan Cape, London, 1965.
