Ian Fleming First Edition, First Printing of “Casino Royale” — the Very First James Bond Novel by Ian Fleming — Scarce Bond “was a compound of all the secret agents and commando types I met during the war”

Very rare and desirable first printing of the Ian Fleming first edition of the first James Bond novel by Ian Fleming, “Casino Royale.” Published by Jonathan Cape: London: 1953, with first printing point of “First Published 1953” on the verso of the title page. This first printing is one of only 4,728 copies printed in 1953, and by far the scarcest of all Bond titles. Approximately half of the original copies were sent to public libraries and therefore were either destroyed or bear ex-libris stamps; this copy has remained in private ownership since publication. Bound in the publisher’s original black cloth with red titles and heart decoration to the front board. Without the dustjacket. Book is in very good condition with light shelf wear, slightly leaning spine, and circular spots to the first ten pages or so. Overall, a very attractive copy of one of the most collected books of the 20th century. Great condition Ian Fleming first edition. Sold for $3,151.78.
