Ian Fleming
Thunderball
London: Jonathan Cape Ltd, 1961. 1961 First Edition / First State (Jonathan Cape Ltd)Original Unclipped Richard Chopping Designed Dust JacketA superb example of Thunderball by Ian Fleming; published in 1961 by Jonathan Cape Ltd. (No other publication dates)The book is in near fine condition - black clothed hardback cover with skeletal hand motif to front board and gilt lettering to spine. No issues other than very minor bumping at spine foot. The interior is clean and white throughout and has no age related issues whatsoever. I would class the condition as fine other than for the one issue which is a red book shop stamp at the foot of the front paste down page. The leaf ends are also perfectly white and give the book an extremely attractive tidy appearance. The spine and binding are fine and book is tight. The dust jacket is the correct version for this book and is in very good + condition with only a couple of issues to note that prevents me stating it as near fine. The front cover has some faint rubbing at the top edge and there is some small marks at the very edge top and bottomof rear flap. The one real issue of note is some rubbing and chipping at spine top. (See Photos) There is no sun related damaged and the covers and flaps are clean, bright and unmarked. The front flap has a blurb about this book and Ian Fleming; this continues to rear flap. The price is unclipped showing as 15s. net at the foot of front flap.
