You Only Live Twice
London: Jonathan Cape, 1964 First edition, first impression, first state ("First published 1964"), binding A. Publisher's black cloth with silver stamping to spine and gold Japanese characters to front board, in original unclipped pictorial dust jacket. Very good, with two small dings to the front board, faint scratch to the top edge, some minor offsetting to the endpapers; price-clipped dust jacket, with some light wear to the extremities, minor tears to the spine head, a few tiny nicks to the front panel and the rear flap fold, light toning and rubbing to the spine, else bright and clean. Overall, a very bright and handsome copy. Gilbert A12a (1.1). You Only Live Twice is "perhaps the most bizarre and doom-fraught of all James Bond's adventures." It is the final installation in the trilogy featuring the villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, leader of the spy organization SPECTRE. After Blofeld murders Bond's young bride in the preceding On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1963), M throws the disheartened 007 into what seems like an impossible mission in Japan where he will once again encounter his nemesis. You Only Live Twice is the last Bond novel to be published during the author's lifetime.. Illus. by Chopping, Richard. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
