        Thunderball

      London: Jonathan Cape 1961 - First edition, first impression. Publisher's dark gray cloth with skeleton hand in blind to front cover, silver titling to spine; in the original unclipped pictorial dust jacket designed by Richard Chopping, with an illustration to the front panel of a skeleton's hand holding a blackjack hand with a knife affixing the cards to the table, lettered in black. Very good, with some light wear and a hint of toning to the extremities, minor stain to the rear endpapers, otherwise bright and clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some wear and rubbing to the panel edges, minor nicks to the spine ends, short closed tear to the front flap fold, a hint of rubbing to the otherwise clean panels. Overall, a clean and presentable copy of the 9th James Bond - Agent 007 adventure. Thunderball is the first of Fleming's novels to involve the notorious villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, head of the secret spy organization SPECTRE (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion). In this novel, Bond is in the Bahamas at a health clinic when SPECTRE steals two atomic bombs. The British and American intelligence agencies team up to launch Operation Thunderball in an effort to recover the weapons. Published only a few years after the Cuban Missile Crisis, Fleming draws a parallel to pre-existing Cold War tensions to heighten the suspense of this novel. Thunderball culminates with a memorable underwater fight scene from which 007 only narrowly escapes. The Blofeld trilogy is continued in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1963) and You Only Live Twice (1964). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
