The Man with the Golden Gun - Ian Lancaster Fleming 1965 - Jonathan Cape, London - First edition, First Impression, First Issue, Second State without the embossed gun on front board. The last of Fleming’s novels, involving the world’s most deadly assassin, the Cuban Paco ‘Pistols’ Scaramanga - the Man with the Golden Gun. Appropriately housed in a custom made half morocco clamshell case, titled in gilt.

A brainwashed James Bond tried, and failed, to kill his boss, M. It's time for him to prove he can be trusted again.

Bond finds his man in the sweltering heat of Jamaica. His plan is to infiltrate Scaramanga's gang of criminals to get close to the man himself. But if he fails, Bond will be the next target for the golden gun.

Published posthumously. For the record there were only 940 copies produced in the ‘trial binding’ with the golden gun embossed to the front board, the final binding did not include the gun due to the high cost of the material.
