£900.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

A good to very good first edition of Live and Let Die, the second novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. The book has black cloth-effect paper covering the boards, with gilt titles titles on spine and gilt embossed circular decoration on front. An ex-library book with stamps on the front and rear end papers, half-title and title page; other stamps in the margin at the bottom of a number of pages, and one found at the top of page 9. Front end paper has a reference number in ink; the borrowing record list has been removed from the free end paper. Text block edges toned with light dust soiling; break to rear end papers exposing webbing; some pages have light soiling marks and a few have light brown areas of waterstaining. Free end papers have vertical glue marks transferred from a library cover, and there are glue marks to the top and bottom of the front and back book covers up to approx. 2.5 cm where the library cover was attached. The dust wrapper is original, showing the 10s. 6d. price on the front flap, and without any reference to artist Kenneth Lewis. Some trimming has been made to the jacket edges, and small cuts to the front flap corners, presumably to accommodate the library cover, and there are brown glue marks down both flaps. There are general usage marks to the front and more noticeable soiling and toning to the back, plus an old label mark, in the white panel advertising 'Casino Royale'. There is a white glue mark at the bottom of the spine, from a library label, approx 2.5 cm x 4 cm in size. Slight colour loss from light rubbing to corners and spine ends. Insured delivery at a cost of £20. A book which could be of interest to collectors, and the many James Bond and Ian Fleming fans.
