Falls Church, VA, USALive Auction
Description: Fleming, Ian. CASINO ROYALE. Macmillan Company, 1954. 1st American edition, in early state (technically the 2nd state) dj: Paul Gallico quote and $2.75 price still present on front flap. As is true of most early djs, the publisher clipped the upper and lower corners of the front flap. At the beginning of the production run, the first few djs went unclipped, but in practice unclipped djs are almost never found on Casino Royale. 8vo. Green cloth lettered in red. Foxing to eps, dj flaps, and peripheral areas of rear panel. Minor wear/nicks around djs spine ends. Probably has small tape repair to djs underside. 0.6 Lb.
