Dr No by Ian Fleming: First Edition
This first edition of Dr No is in a very good condition and a real find. The plain, black boards with silver titles to the spine are in fine condition with no bumps. Corners and edges are very good condition. The contents are clean. The dust jacket designed by Pat Marriot has bright and clear shadow image/silhouette of the dancing woman to the front. The rear flap is blank with only a credit statement to the artist. The words “Ian Fleming” on the spine are black. Priced at 13s 6d net. The dust jacket has benefited from being professionally cleaned but this has very slightly shrunk the jacket by a couple of mm in height, so is reflected in the price. 8vo 256 pp.
