The Spy Who Loved Me.

London: Jonathan Cape, 1962. [Spy thriller] FIRST EDITION, State B. Crown octavo (21 x 13cm), pp.221; [1]. Publisher's cloth-effect paper over boards with scarlet endpapers in pictorial dust-jacket illustrated by Richard Chopping, priced 15s. Scarce VARIANT ISSUE with the dropped spacer within the author's name. From the bibliography, 'very rarely the title page shows a quad mark between the E and M of Fleming'. As few as one in ten copies exist in this state within the first print run (Gilbert, page 332). Most elusive, and desirable thus. No inscriptions, contents clean, jacket slightly frayed at crown. A near fine copy of this elusive first edition variant, in an attractive cloth clamshell. The tenth book in the James Bond series. A beautiful girl with a sensual past, Vivienne Michel, is different from all the women 007 has known before. When she is confronted with two evil killers there is only one man who can save her - Bond himself. Item #66028
