~ The Spy Who Loved Me By Ian Fleming, 1962, First Edition ~

A first edition copy of "The Spy Who Loved Me " By Ian Fleming.

The book was first published in 1962 by Jonathan Cape, London.

The front of the book has a depiction of a Fairburn Sykes fighting knife, with shining silver blade. The spine of has the title & Ian Fleming's name in silver shining writing.

~ The Spy Who Loved Me ~

The Spy Who Loved Me is the ninth novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series, first published by Jonathan Cape on 16 April 1962. It is the shortest and most sexually explicit of Fleming's novels, as well as a clear departure from previous Bond novels in that the story is told in the first person by a young Canadian woman, Vivienne Michel. Bond himself does not appear until two thirds of the way through the book. Fleming wrote a prologue to the novel giving Michel credit as a co-author.

Due to the reactions by critics and fans, Fleming was not happy with the book and attempted to suppress elements of it where he could: he blocked a paperback edition in the UK and only gave permission for the title to be used when he sold the film rights to Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli, rather than any aspects of the plots. However, the character of Jaws is loosely based on one of the characters in the book and the paperback edition was published in the UK after his death.

~ Dimensions ~ 

The book has a width of 5.5 inches (14cm), a height of 8 inches (20.5cm) and a depth of 1.3 inches (3.25cm). It has 221 pages.

~ Condition ~

The book does not include the original dust jacket. The binding is in excellent condition, minor bump to top of spine, lower corner and lower front edge. The first page has the name of a previous owner written in ink. The pages have only some minor wear to the corners.
