Description
Ian Fleming - The Man With The Golden Gun - 1965
Literature - Quantity: 1 - Book

This is a super-condition first edition, first impression of The Man With the Golden Gun. This is the second state of the first impression (ie without the embossed gold gun to the boards), but is a VERY RARE variant, in that it features white endpapers (less than 3,000 were printed out of the original 82,000 first impression print run) - making this a very desirable copy to own. Normally, the endpapers are the green 'bamboo' design. White endpapers were used when supplies of the green sheets ran out, and to save halting to the binding process, white ones were used to finish the print run. (Gilbert, bilbliography). As such, this is a scarce, and very sought after variant. Condition of the book is excellent - especially the jacket, which does not feature the usual sunning (ie discolouration) to the DJ spine. Internally, the pages are in as-new white, bright condition. There are NO internal marks, annotations, blemishes, or spots/foxing of any sort. A fantastically crisp copy. A normal Man With The Golden Gun is exceptionally hard to find in this condition, let alone this rare variant.
