New York, NY: Signet Books, Published by The New American Library, 1958-1967. [Spy Fiction] FIRST SIGNET EDITIONS, all first printings. Fourteen volumes, octavo (18 x 11 x 17cm). Publisher's colour illustrated softcovers, all edges tinted red. Single owner name to 'Octopussy', some handling and wear, expected toning to cheap paper (heavy to Doctor No), reading creases to same title, Goldfinger and OHMSS. Generally a very good, presentable set. An important edition, being the first uniform set of James Bond paperbacks to be issued in America; prior to this date only four books in the series had been issued, in a smaller format (two under alternative book titles) by Perma Books. Many of these Signet first printings are increasingly uncommon. Item #58738
