Item specifics

Type: Antiquarian & Collectable Number of Items: 7
A rare set of James Bond Books.  In 1961 (just before the first Bond film, Dr No hit the cinemas)  Pan books decided to cash in and issue a set of Bond books with a photo of "James Bond" on each cover.   Ralph Vernon-Hunt, a  WW2 Spitfire fighter ace was the Managing Director of Pan books at the time and decided to be the model for Bond himself (well, if you had the chance why not!).    Only a small number of books with these covers were printed and its incredibly difficult to put together a complete set like this.  

These books look great on the shelf and older bond books are going up in value so make a enjoyable investment. 

Will be carefully packed for delivery, feel free to ask any questions.

Not connected to the listing above!
I collect the Pan paperback copies of James Bond books and for some long forgotten reason decided to try and collect one copy of every edition.  Given there are 14 books with up to 33 editions per book its quite a task.  I am now only missing a few copies so please get in touch if you have any of the following editions to sell or trade.

Casino Royale 5th, 11th, 14th, 26th, 27th
Moonraker 28th
Live And Let Die 26th
Dr No 10th
Goldfinger 24th
The Spy Who Loved Me 5th

I am also searching for the 1st Pan edition of You Only Live Twice (1965) with the promotional wrap around dust jacket which looks like the move tie in edition
