On Her Majesty's Secret Service - Ian Lancaster Fleming

1963 - Jonathan Cape, London - First Edition
A sharp and smart first edition of the second of the Bond books now known as the ‘Blofeld’ trilogy, sitting between Thunderball (1961) and You Only Live Twice (1964). Appropriately housed in a custom made black morocco leather, felt lined, clamshell case, with gilt lettering to the spine.

Filmed in 1969; directed by Peter Hunt, with a terrific story line and slick script from the ever-reliable screenwriter Richard Maibaum, O.H.M.S.S. features superb action, spectacular locations, a marvellous John Barry score, and, in Diana Rigg’s Contessa Teresa de Vicenzo (aka Tracy, aka Mrs James Bond), probably the greatest Bond Girl of all time.

The movie, unlike most in the franchise, was faithful to the original Ian Fleming novel and is a fine thriller; one of the grittiest movies of the series.
