First edition, first impression. Publisher's original black cloth with blind-stamped dagger, the blade in silver to upper board, titles in silver to the spine, in the Richard Chopping illustrated dustwrapper. A lovely fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the better than very good lightly rubbed and nicked price-clipped dustwrapper that has a single short closed tear with a little associated scuffing at the bottom of the rear spine fold.
An attractive example of the tenth James Bond book. [Gilbert A10a (1.1).]
