James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me.
London: Jonathan Cape, 1977. [Espionage novel] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.222 . Publisher's black cloth-effect material over boards, with gilt titles to spine. With the dust-jacket designed by Bill Botten, priced at £3.50. Crisp and clean internally, with just a touch of toning to edges. Jacket a little worn to extremities with some toning to spine panel. Near fine. This is the original story / novel of the 1977 James Bond film 'The Spy Who Loved Me' written under licence from Ian Fleming's copyright holders Glidrose. A particularly elusive book in collectible condition; many copies entered the lending library system and are marked as such. In addition, price-clipping appears to be an issue with this title.
