London: Jonathan Cape Ltd., 1992-4. [Spy thrillers] FIRST EDITIONS thus. Three omnibus volumes containing all the original James Bond novels and issued by the original publisher in this new format. Octavo. Publisher's black cloth with variously coloured metallic titles to spines. With the pictorial dust-jackets, variously priced. These are thick, heavy books and usually suffer from knocks and creasing to jackets, sunning to red lettering on spine, etc. In addition, many copies were sent to libraries. These copies are near fine to very good, with some very light sunning to the red titles of the final volume, a few light marks to boards of same and dried adhesive mark to backstrip. Shows very well indeed. Cape had previously published The James Bond Onmibus (1973), which contained three titles, but it was not until the early 90s that the whole set was issued in an omnibus series by Cape. Item #62538
