Ian Fleming
Complete 1st Ed. Centenary Set, 2008 Penguin James Bond (007) - 14 Books
2008. Complete set of all 14 Ian Fleming James Bond (007) hardcover books, published by Penguin UK in 2008. For this Centenary Edition, published on the 100th anniversary of Fleming's birth, Penguin turned to the UK born, US based "pop-art" artist Michael Gillette to do the cover art.

"From Russia with Love" (#5) has "Imperfect Copy" in German stamped on bottom page edges (see photos).
