Dr. No (a James Bond novel)
London: Jonathan Cape. 1958, 1958. First Impression, Second State. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards with 'Dancing Lady' design on upper, silver titles to spine, in pictorial dust wrapper designed by Pat Marriott. Internally clean and bright, spine with slight lean, jacket discreetly and expertly repaired to extremities. A fine copy, with no inscriptions or price-clipping. Filmed by Broccolli/Saltzman in 1962, and with a John Barry soundtrack, this was the one that started it all and introduced the world to Sean Connery... Many of the now familiar elements appeared in this first entry of the series: M, Moneypenny, Felix Leiter, Q/Major Boothroyd, SPECTRE, the Walther PPK, a Casino and a Vodka Martini! The plot was simple and the movie was low-key and down to earth; there were no overblown gadgets to save the day, only Bond's cunning and intuition. This made it a more realistic film and more like Fleming's novel; a first-rate thriller.
