Doctor No (Dr. No)
MacMillan 1958 - IAN FLEMING - DOCTOR NO (published in the U.K. as "Dr. No), published by MacMillan, copyright 1958, First Printing (no references to subsequent printings - there was never a 2nd printing in this format), white endpapers with black cloth boards and red lettering on spine and front board, $3.50 price on DJ front flap. Book has flat white pages with sharp outer page corners, no creased page corners, no foxing to pages, endpapers or outer page edges, slight age darkening/dust soiling to outer page edges, endpapers are clean and free from any tape residue or erasures, no former owner's markings or used bookseller stamps/stickers inside, no wear to board edges, corners or spine tips, no bumped board corners, no discoloration/soiling to boards.

Overall a FINE-/N-FINE book in VG+ condition dust jacket (not price clipped) of an Ian Fleming U.S. 1st printing hardcover book. While the last 4 Ian Fleming James Bond books are very common in the U.S. trade printing state, all of the U.S. Fleming books before On Her Majesty's Secret Service are quite scarce as the U.S. print runs were very very small (in comparison to the U.K. print runs) as the "bond mania" craze had not really hit the U.S. until after the release of Dr. No in the movie theatres in late 1962. I have a number of other U.S. and U.K. Ian Fleming James Bond 1st printing hardcover appearances up for sale. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
