The Viking Press, New York. 1962. American First Edition, First Printing. 8vo. 211pp. Signed by Ian Fleming. Bound in the original publisher cloth boards.
NEAR FINE in Very Good dust jacket. The book itself shows the slightest hint of shelf rubbing along the edges, otherwise is Fine/As New being completely free of all use and wear. The dust jacket shows slight shelf rubbing along the edges and corners, spine with just a hint of toning, otherwise is not price-clipped remaining bright, colorful and distinct. As pictured. This is a well-preserved first American edition of this work, with the jacket designed Richard Chopping preserved in paper-backed mylar. An oddity in the James Bond series, it is told from the perspective of a young Candian woman. Bond himself does not appear until two-thirds of the way through the book. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
