Ian Fleming
Ian Fleming - Thunderball - UK 1st 1st - James Bond - Author Casino Royale
Fleming, Ian - Thunderball - Jonathan Cape: London, 1961 - First Edition / First Printing - "First Published 1961" stated on the copyright page with no mention of later printings as required in order to denote the first printing of the first edition. "My name is Bond, James Bond." The book has edge wear with some light rubbing and spotting to the edges of the block. The boards remain straight, the gilt lettering on the spine is bright, binding is square, and internally there is a bookplate on the front end page but otherwise it is free of writing. The dust jacket is soiled, rubbed, has shallow chips and a few short tears. A still presentable example which presents well behind the new archival dust jacket protector. This title was the first time Bond had uttered the trade mark catchphrase "My name's Bond, James Bond" (p. 114). This title is also the first installment in the Blofeld trilogy which is completed by On Her Majesty's Secret Service and You Only Live Twice. Adapted in 1965 into what is likely the most memorable of the Bond films to star Connery. Increasingly uncommon. All books are offered with a full 30 day postage paid return policy. All books which are in dust jackets will be mailed with a clear archival dust jacket protector fitted. Shipping costs can be combined if multiple purchases are made. Items will be packaged and shipped within one business day unless otherwise noted. Please always feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Under The Jacket (underthejacketbooks) [Greenwood, South Carolina, United States]
