[Live and Let Die] Contained within 'Bluebook' magazine, Vol. 99, No.1.
McCall Corporation, May 1954. FIRST US APPEARANCE. Scarce American abridged publication of the second James Bond novel, appearing here nearly a whole year before the American book-form edition, and just one month after the UK Cape edition. This story can be found on pp88-128, printed in double columns. There are two exclusive illustrations, both in colour; the frontispiece on p.88 and the dramatic cover painting. Magazine format in illustrated paper wraps, originally priced at 25 cents. Cheap paper toned, some minor wear otherwise a particularly bright example. Fine An extremely elusive periodical printing of a James Bond novel- not mentioned by the previous bibliographers Iain Campbell, Otto Penzler and Biondi/ Pickard. A major rarity and a highspot of any serious Ian Fleming/James Bond collection. Item #45263
