In Fleming's seventh 007 novel, a private assignment sets Bond on the trail of a criminal mastermind - Auric Goldfinger. But greed and power have created a deadly opponent who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
This is a rare 1st Printing of the 1st UK hardback published by Jonathan Cape in 1959.

A Very Good original 1st issue wrapper with the price neatly clipped and the Goldfinger blurb to the front inner flap.
Two small chips and a little wear to head, foot and corners.
A mostly bright and clean copy, with a lightly toned spine.
A few small marks to back panel.
Some small repairs done to the reverse of the jacket, stabilising the wear to the spine.
Joints of flaps a little worn and frayed.
A very good book, in the 1st state boards.
Blind-stamped skull, with gold coins for eyes.
Bright gold gilt lettering to spine.
Slight fraying at head of spine and to corners.
A little bumping to foot of spine.
Pages clean and free of rips, creases and inscriptions.
