Moonraker.
London: Jonathan Cape. 1955.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.256. This is the scarce variant on the thin paper stock with 'shoo' for 'shoot' printed to p.10. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards, titled in silver, in 'flame' design dust-wrapper by Kenneth Lewis. The paper stock is toned as expected (this state 'prone to browning' - Gilbert p.95), otherwise contents and binding are near fine, with a small bump to the upper corner. The dust-jacket is a little edgeworn else near fine, exhibiting the usual condition issues inherent with this title; 'the panels are prone to browning and the bright colours suffer from fading' (p.96). A pleasing copy of a rare variant. The 'shoo' version accounts for "as few as one in five copies of the first impression". A true Bond highlight.
