Live and Let Die
By Ian Fleming
First edition, third impression (Jonathan Cape, 1956). Less common than the previous two impressions with a print run consisting of just 999 copies.
Publisher's original black cloth with lettering to spine and motif to upper board in gilt. Faint spotting to first few pages with some toning to edges and a couple of small indentations to upper board, else very good and free from previous owner names and inscriptions.
The original and unclipped dust jacket is also very good with some toning and spotting in places to verso and lower panel and small areas of rubbing to extremities. A very good copy indeed.
