      Jonathan Cape, London 1961 - First edition, binding A of the ninth novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a fine first-issue dust jacket. Dust jacket art by Richard Chopping. A superior example. "Thunderball represented a new departure [for the Bond series], with the introduction of SPECTRE and of Ernst Blofeld, a commanding villain who was to reappear. This gave a measure of continuity to the later Bond novels Thunderball worked well as an adventure story the theme of the theft of atom bombs seemed pertinent and modern" (Black, 49, 55). "A thriller, a chiller and a pleasure to read" (New York Times). It was adapted twice to the screen: under the present title in 1965 and as Never Say Never Again in 1983—each time starring Sean Connery. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Ouvrage cité par Coron (livres illustrés, BN) et Chapon (le peintre et le livre) qui sait trouver les mots pour illustrer ce travail: "aux tensions qui s'érigent à la surface de la page, et même en profondeur (Lecuire fut un des premiers à avoir introduit, avec les estampilles d'Hadju, une troisième dimension dans le livre sans en trahir pour autant la fonction.) s'opposent les résistances du noir et ce jeu, éminemment mystérieux, qui d'un nombre limité de lettres, d'une forme à elles imposée par le plomb, et d'associations rigoureuses voulues par la langue, tire une infinité de significations. La grille de cette transmutation a été renouvelée par Lecuire dans chacun de ses livres." Parfait état. [Attributes: First Edition]

      - Riproduzione lussuosa delle poligrafiche Bolis di Bergamo su commissione della Banca popolare di Bergamo. Ex lilbris Ing. Evandro Terinelli all'inizio di ogni volume. Due volumi cm. 30 base e 41 di altezza, due astucci ricoperti di velluto. Stemma in argento finemente lavorato sui due piatti. Totale di circa 1300 pagine, circa 50 delle quali sono qui riprodotte a colori spettacolari che fanno magnificamente risaltare l'arte somma dei miniaturisti del '500 (Taddeo Crivelli e Franco del Russi della scuola ferrarese), mentre la scrittura gotica su due colonne fu opera del calligrafo milanese Pier Paolo Moroni. I due volumi che presentiamo sono in condizioni ottime. La magnifica opera, riconosciuta come un capolavoro assoluto del Rinascimento italiano, venne commissionata dal Principe Duca Borso tra il 1455 ed il 1461 e restò presso la corte Estense fino al 1859 . Con la fine del dominio estense, venne quindi portata a Vienna da Francesco Quinto. Finita poi in possesso dell'antiquario parigino ROMEUF, venne da questi comprata per una cifra incredibile nel 1923 dal padre della enciclopedia italiana GIOVANNI TRECCANI , che subito la fece rientrare in Italia donandola allo Stato, che ne decretò il ritorno a MODENA PRESSO LA BIBLIOTECA ESTENSE dove è tuttora custodita, proprio come ai fasti di Modena capitale. A richiesta possiamo fornire dettagli ed ampia documentazione fotografica.
