Ian Fleming - Thunderball: First edition - 1961

Description
Ian Fleming - Thunderball: First edition - 1961
Literature - Quantity: 1 - Book

Here is an overall very good first edition, first impression of Thunderball. [Jacket is graded 'very good', in a 'good' book - the book has tape marks to endpapers, and discrete owners' name to the front and back]. The first edition/first impression print run of Thunderball was just 50,000 copies - making this a numerically low number print run. The jacket is original and unclipped, and correct to the book, showing the as-called for price of 15s. (Often the price was clipped off). Shows minimal wear - a touch of rubbing to the spine ends, and some tiny abrasions to the back of the DJ. Otherwise very good indeed, lovely vibrant colours to the face of the DJ and only minimal evidence of light exposure to the DJ spine (as is quite typical with this book). Book itself has endpaper tape marks and inscriptions, but once into the novel, all the pages are mark-free, without any writing, foxing etc.. This is NOT ex-library. Text block edges show minor surface foxing but these do not extend to the pages themselves. Overall, a very nice condition book indeed. This title is getting increasingly hard to find in good condition, and this is easily a very good example of this hard-to-find-in-good-condition book.
