Thunderball.
London: Jonathan Cape,, 1961. Octavo. Original dark brown cloth, Gilbert's binding A (no priority) with the spine lettered in gilt, skeletal hand motif on front cover blocked in blind. With the dust jacket. Crease to p. 205, else a very good copy in the price-clipped dust jacket, spine panel slightly sunned. First edition, first impression, of the ninth Bond book. Ian Fleming's novel Thunderball incorporated material from an unproduced screenplay he had worked on in 1958 in collaboration with Kevin McClory, Jack Whittingham, and Ivar Bryce, with the result that Fleming found himself in a well-publicised case in the High Court defending himself against McClory's accusations of plagiarism, though Fleming and McClory eventually settled out of court.
