LIVE AND LET DIE

Edition: First printing

London: Cape, 1954. Black cloth. Cover gilt a little dulled as often but quite clear; tiny nick at head of spine; page edges yellowed; just a wee bit leaned; else a VG clean and unworn copy, no owner names. The purple dust jacket spine has rubbing to the folds and head of spine, with a shallow chip across head (well away from any lettering) and short tears very neatly, almost invisibly, repaired internally; yellow lettering is sunned but the spine is not faded, unusually for this colour; small chips to outer corners of panels; rear panel yellowed; about VG otherwise, still respectable in appearance, flap price (front and rear flaps) intact. This is the jacket variant with "author'sskill" typo in second line of the Irish Times review on rear panel for Casino Royale (no established priority) The scarce second James Bond novel, published in an edition 7.5 copies, a small print run compared with most Bond books. The jacket is in the second state, with printed credit for the jacket design about half way between the blurb and the bottom edge. We have laid in a piece of coloured paper under the jacket at the head of spine which matches the spine colour and makes for a better appearance.
