RARE 1st Printing Goldfinger Ian Fleming Jonathan Cape 1959 UK H/B James Bond

Rare 1st State Boards with extra detail to skull.

The Blurb


You're stale, tired of having to be tough. You want a change. You've seen too much death'



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.



The Book


This is a rare 1st Printing of the 1st UK hardback published by Jonathan Cape in 1959.

This particular copy has been bound in the much rarer 1st state boards with the small diagonal point of detail to the top left of the skull on the front board.


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.

Lightly toned, with a couple of light marks to page edges.


A rather smart, bright solid copy, with only minor repairs. 


We have plenty of other Ian Fleming 1st Printings available including a Fine copy of Dr. No.
