London: Longmans, Green and Company Ltd. 1962. FIRST UK EDITION. Pp.298 + index. Publisher's white cloth in pictorial dustjacket. This particularly copy was exported to Australia and has a bookseller ticket to the pastedown and price-clipped as required. Both book and jacket show some mild toning and wear with a short tear to the joint, but essentially this is a clean, near fine copy. A James Bond source book, singled out by Ian Fleming as a research volume for his novel 'You Only Live Twice' and listed as 'recommended reading' in his own copy. These Longmans firsts are much less common than copies issued under their 'Travel Book Club' imprint the following year. Item #39821
