Devil May Care - Limited Bentley Edition
Doubleday, London 2008 - Bound in Bodoniana style cases finished in ‘Burnt Oak’ leather, sourced from the Pasubia tannery, which provides the hides for Bentley. Leather casing stitched in Bentley diamond pattern, as found on the radiator grille and the upholstery of modern Bentleys. Bentley ‘Flying B’, radiator cap of the Bentleys of Bond’s time, on front cover and spine. Unique edition number on a black lacquer machined steel engine plate (as found on every Bentley engine). The typography reflects the styling of the Bentley owner’s manuals. Pages die-cut with a car-shaped silhouette to house the 1: 43 scale model of the modified R-type which Fleming is thought to have had Bond driving — the Locomotive, hand-crafted by hand by Bentley’s current design team, individually numbered to match the book number. Original plexiglass slip-case in numbered publisher's shipping box; When an Algerian drug runner is savagely executed, Agent 007 is recalled to Paris from his sabbatical in Rome to shadow the mysterious Dr. Julius Gorner, a greedy power-crazed pharmaceutical magnate. The glamorous Scarlett Papava is Bond's willing accomplice in this Cold War era thriller. Faulks picks up where Ian Fleming left off, having Bond face dangers powerfully relevant to our own times. Limited to 300 copies [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
