Item #62042 003½: The Adventures of James Bond Junior. R. D. MASCOTT.

003½: The Adventures of James Bond Junior.

London: Jonathan Cape, 1967. [Young Bond] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (21 x 14cm), pp.175 [1]. With occasional illustrations by Christopher Chamberlain. Publisher's black cloth, with gilt titles to spine and cartographic endpapers. With the dust-jacket illustrated by Jane Hood, priced at 16s. Bookseller's ticket to front flyleaf, and a large purple ownership stamp to both front pastedown and half-title. Jacket sunned and rubbed to spine, with some light wear to edges. Very good. Although an officially licensed spin-off, 003½: The Adventures of James Bond Junior is considered a failed attempt at launching a youth-oriented line of fiction aimed at 8 to 14 year olds. A moderately successful TV cartoon series by the same name was, produced by EON Productions (1991), and in 2005, unrelated to 003½, Ian Fleming Publications published a successful youth-oriented line of 'Young Bond' adventures by Charlie Higson, featuring James Bond the schoolboy. The UK edition precedes the US first printing. Item #62042

Price: £65.00
