The Man with the Golden Gun

Author: Ian Fleming

Publisher: Jonathan Cape

1st/1st Edition, (Second State without Gun motif)* 1965.

Hardback with Dust Jacket

Dust Jacket

The Jacket has no significant tears or rips apart from the top of the spine which does have some slight splits. There is some slight sunning/browning to the spine BUT overall is very good. It has been price clipped. (See photos).

The Boards & Prelim pages
Publishers dark brown Fabroleen cloth-effect paper over boards with bronze lettering to the spine. The Boards are in good condition but with a mark on the front board where a previous sticker was applied. This may be able to be lifted with specialist care. There are no cuts to the cloth & the spine blocking is good. The green end-papers are in good condition with no foxing/discolouration. There is an inscription on the inside facing page written in blue ink. There are no other marks/inscriptions to any of the prelim pages.

The pages
All the pages are very clean with no foxing and no soning/discolouration. There are no pen/pencil marks in the margins or any underlining & there are no loose pages & they are tight in the binding. There is some slight discolouration to the page edges but this is to be expected for a 50 year old book.

*Technically this title was issued in two states. However the first state print run was extremely small (estimated at 150 copies), and consisted of an embossed golden gun to the front board. During production, errors with this design were discovered and the gun motif was removed for the balance of the print run. As such the books printed with the embossed gun are exceedingly scarce. For all practical purposes when one uses the term ‘first edition’ for this title, one refers to the first edition without the embossed golden gun.

A very good example of a 1st/1st Edition.
