Description

  

 

LIVE AND LET DIE

 FIRST EDITON, FIRST IMPRESSION, 1954

FIRST EDITION, SECOND STATE DUST JACKET

 BY IAN FLEMING




 This listing is for the First Edition, First Impression of LIVE AND LET DIE by Ian Fleming. Published by Jonathan Cape of London, 1954. Beautiful clean book with a scarce NEAR FINE dust jacket IN THE SECOND OF THE THREE STATES WITH THE KENNETH LEWIS PRINTED BLURB FLOATING IN THE LOWER AREA OF THE FRONT FLAP. Second book in the James Bond series, after Casino Royale. These books are extremely rare with only 7,500 copies of the first edition printed, and with even fewer available in their original dust jackets. The book in this listing comes with its original first edition, second state dust jacket (see below for more information of first edition dust jacket states of Live And Let Die). Please note that most of the value of the early James Bond titles is found in the original dust jacket, as although the books are rare, the first edition jackets are even more rare --the result of both the jacket being more fragile and prone to damage, in addition to the fact that many were often discarded. (One can find the first edition book available for purchase from $1000-$1500 without a jacket depending on the condition, but the same book with a first edition jacket will sell for $8000 and up in a third state jacket and $10000 in a second state jacket, and $19,000 and up in a first state jacket!)
 
 

Original crisp black covered boards in beautiful condition with sharp corners and no edgewear. The gilt medallion and titles have are slightly oxidized/faded as it typical for this title. The binding is tight and square. The end papers are clean and bright with no owner names, no inscriptions, no bookstore stamps and no bookplates, with one very tiny nick to edge. The internal pages are crisp, clean and bright with no stains, no writing, no bent pages, no torn pages, no foxing and no age toning. An unusually clean, crisp, tidy example of this elusive first edition, first impression Fleming book with no issues. Please see images for details.


The book comes with a stunning, vibrant, near fine, original first edition dust jacket in the second state. Images in the listing were taken both with and without a dust jacket protector for better viewing.  Three states of the true first edition dust jacket were printed for LIVE AND LET DIE, all 3 states of the first edition jacket look identical with the exception of the one sentence credit statement to the dust jacket designer located on the inside front flap. Very scarce and collectible, (First edition, first state books typically are priced from $15,000-$30,000 due to their scarcity with estimations of only 500 printed in the first state-- and have no Kenneth Lewis 'credit' statement; second and third states have the credit statement, with the third state having the credit statement just below the text, and the second state having the credit statement floating in the lower white space of the inside flap). 











This dust jacket is the first edition, second state dust jacket and has benefited from very slight restoration to the tip of the spine by an expert paper conservator and presents as a near fine example.  The dust jacket is in stunning, vibrant condition with no edgewear, no rips, no chips, no stains, no rubbing, and no foxing.  The rear panel is usually bright for this title with only a slight touch of toning. The dust jacket is neatly priced clipped to the front, and NOT price clipped to the rear flap which has the stated price of 10s. 6d. net. Please see the many detailed images.


A very handsome, clean example of this scarce title and perfect for the Fleming collector who is looking for a beautiful first edition, first impression of Live And Let Die with an original striking first edition, second state dust jacket! Presents beautifully on the shelf, in addition to making a wonderful investment.

However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
