For Your Eyes Only - Ian Lancaster Fleming 1960 - Jonathan Cape, London - First Edition A fine first edition in exceptionally clean dust jacket with none of the usual fading to the spine’s red lettering or toning commonly encountered on this notoriously delicate laminated dust jacket, the only one of the series to be laminated.

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'.

Appropriately housed in a bespoke black cloth clamshell case, lined in scarlet red felt, the spine with gilt stamped lettering and thematic gilt stamped gold eye.
