Thunderball - FLEMING, Ian - 1961. 
London: Jonathan Cape,, 1961. Octavo. Original dark brown boards, titles to spine gilt, skeletal hand design on front board in blind. With the pictorial dust jacket. An excellent copy in the jacket with spine a little toned, short closed tear to head of spine, and a couple of nicks to extremities. First edition, first impression. Ian Fleming's novel Thunderball incorporated material from an unproduced screenplay he had worked on in 1958 in collaboration with Kevin McClory, Jack Whittingham, and Ivar Bryce, with the result that Fleming found himself in a well-publicised case in the High Court defending himself against McClory's accusations of plagiarism, though Fleming and McClory eventually settled out of court.
