From Russia, With Love.

London: Jonathan Cape, 1957. [Thriller] FIRST EDITION, Binding 'A'. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.253 [3]. Publisher's black cloth-effect material over boards, blocked in silver and red metallic foil to spine and upper. With the PROOF-STATE dust-jacket, illustrated by Richard Chopping, priced at 13/6. Pencil name to flyleaf, otherwise contents clean. Jacket shows general wear, with some chips and tears to edges, toning and rubbing to spine, and adhesion marks to reverse offset from an old jacket sleeve. Housed in a bespoke black cloth clamshell to a uniform design by Jon Gilbert. Proof-state jackets have square corners to the flaps. Scarce thus. This entry in the legendary James Bond series is an absolute classic; 007 does battle with SMERSH, the Soviet organisation of vengeance, interrogation, torture and death, and in particular their fearsome executioner Red Grant. The novel appears on both lists [100 Greatest Mysteries] compiled by the Crime Writers' Association (UK) and the Mystery Writers' Organisation (America). Item #62935
