Book Description

Very good plus publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards with red titles and 'Heart' design to front cover, 'playing card' jacket designed by Pat Marriott. A crisp, clean copy in unclipped jacket with a price of £1.95. Two ink withdrawn stamps on the half title page and an ink number on the verso title page. Faint tape residue on the inner front and rear flaps of the jacket. Internally very good.
Dealer Notes
Casino Royale was written by Ian Fleming in Jamaica over a period of around two months, largely from his own experiences and imagination; he also devised the artwork for the cover. "Within the first few pages Fleming had introduced most of Bond's idiosyncrasies and trademarks," which included his looks, his Bentley and his smoking and drinking habits. The full details of Bond's martini were kept until chapter seven of the book and Bond eventually named it "The Vesper", after Vesper Lynd"
