Goldfinger.

UK: Heron Books, Printed in Geneva, 1981. [Spy novel] FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION. Octavo (20 x 12cm), pp.[x] 318. With a frontispiece portrait of the author by Sheilagh Noble. Publisher's burgundy faux-leather vinyl over boards, tooled in gilt, ribbon marker, brown endpapers, embroidered head and tail bands. No jacket was issued. A few spots to edges, gilt to spine a little rubbed (as inevitably found), publisher's 'reject' sticker to pastedown. Very good indeed. A 'deluxe hardcover' gift edition with a full-page plate, being the first British illustrated book-form edition of 'Goldfinger'. From the comprehensive Ian Fleming bibliographical archive assembled by Jon Gilbert, with his pencilled notes and ownership. Virtually all copies we have handled have issues with the gilt blocking, this likely being the reason for the publisher's quality control label being applied. Item #65408

Gilbert A7a (12).
