"YOU SEE, WE'VE GOT ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD": FIRST EDITION OF ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE

FLEMING, Ian. On Her Majesty's Secret Service. London: Jonathan Cape, (1963). Octavo, original brown paper boards; original dust jacket. $1600.

First trade edition of the eleventh Bond novel, in which 007 takes a bride, only to have his happiness cut short by the schemes of his archnemesis, Ernst Blofeld.

Published simultaneously with the signed limited edition of 250 copies, the 11th James Bond novel—the first published after the debut of the Bond film series—became "an immediate bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic" (Biondi & Pickard, 53). George Lazenby, in his only outing as the secret agent, starred in the 1969 film version, with Diana Rigg as Tracy and Telly Savalas as Blofeld. Gilbert A11a (1.1).

Book with soiling to bottom edge of text block, dust jacket with faintest soiling and only light rubbing to extremities. A near-fine copy.
