First Edition The James Bond Dossier by Kingsley Amis:
The James Bond Dossier is an interesting find especially as it features the original illustrated dustwrapper designed by Jan Pienkowski. The images are based on the famous trompe l’oeil paintings by Richard Chopping and reproduced on the jackets of the original James Bond books. The book was written shortly after Fleming’s last work, the Man with the Golden Gun. This first edition The James Bond Dossier is a tidy copy in good condition.
