For Your Eyes Only - Ian Lancaster Fleming 1960 - Jonathan Cape, London - First Edition The first selection of James Bond short stories, which was followed by ‘Octopussy’, ‘The Living Daylights’, and ‘The Property of a Lady’. This collection includes ‘For Your Eyes Only’, ‘From A View to a Kill’ and ‘Quantum of Solace’, all of which, although heavily rewritten, were filmed as part of the 007 movie series. Also included are 'Risico' and 'The Hildebrand Rarity'.

Increasingly difficult to encounter a dust jacket like this with bright red lettering to spine, which is prone to fading.

Appropriately housed in a bespoke black morocco leather, felt lined clamshell case, with gilt lettering to the spine.
