Moonraker

FLEMING, Ian

FLEMING, Ian Moonraker

Cape, 1955.

First edition. Original black cloth with silver embossed titles, in striking 'flames' dustwrapper. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper which is bright and crisp and, exceptionally, shows no meaningful fading to the spine. The front panel shows a couple of small, barely visible superficial stains, but withal an exceptionally well preserved copy. Housed in a clamshell case.

The third James Bond book, in which Fleming's well established narrative style grows in confidence, displaying his own brand of polished suspense. Cape's confidence in Fleming is evident as well, as 10,500 copies of the first edition were published, and the book is not intrinsically scarce. The materials used for the dustwrapper however (cheap, soft paper printed in orange and yellow, which fades, on a white background, which browns) means that to find it in fine condition is notably rare.
