Ian Fleming - Dr. No
1st Edition / 1st Printing / 1st State DJ
                                          
Up for grabs is a superb first edition, first printing copy of 'Dr No' by Ian Fleming (with the rare first state dust jacket).

First published in 1958 by Jonathan Cape (with no mention of any other printings), the book condition is as close to 'Fine' as you will come across with bright boards and guilt lettering to the spine,
showing the silhouette of the dancing girl to the front board and only some light brown spotting to the first few pages of the book.

The first issue original dust jacket is an absolute beauty which seems to have been
extremely well preserved over the years (as the photo's of both the front and back of the dust jacket show). The very bottom of the dust jacket has been trimmed which is common place with some library and private copies from the past. The '13s' is missing from the dust jacket but it still retains the '6d' price to the corner flap. Despite the minor trimming to the dust jacket, the condition itself is as close as many collectors will get to a 'Fine' copy without having to pay upwards of £3000. The fact that the dust jacket doesn't have any rips, tears, marks or been left in the sunlight (which results in fading to the spine) is unbelievable given that the book is some 56 years old. Rarely do copies which has been so well preserved turn up on the market.

This book will undoubtedly rise rapidly in value and is certain to attract the serious collectors and enthusiasts out there. I have just seen a copy of Dr. No which sold on ebay for £670.00 (Item Ref:
111275536785). I can assure you this copy is massively superior in every way (both the book and dust jacket), so feel free to compare the difference in condition between the two books. This book is one of the freshest copies I've handled in a long time, definately an exceptional find.

I am selling this book with 'No Reserve', so getting bidding now and grab yourself a beautiful book which will stand out in any Ian Fleming collection.

Payment must be paid via paypal within 48 hours of this listing ending. I will happily post this book using 'Special Delivery' (at a cost to myself) to the winning bidder.

Should you have any queries then please don't hesitate to get in touch with me.

Good Luck with the Auction !!
