First edition, first impression. Original black cloth with blind-stamped dagger, the blade in silver to upper board, titles in silver to the spine, in dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, just a little dustiness to the text block edges, the contents clean and without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the very good lightly rubbed and nicked price-clipped dustwrapper which has a few light marks and mild toning to the rear panel.
The tenth of Ian Fleming's James Bond books. 29,738 copies printed. [Gilbert A10a (1.1).]
