CASINO ROYALE

PUBLISHED BY JONTHAN CAPE - 1953

1st Ed book 3rd impression dustjacket

 
 

BOOK: Is in very good + condition, it is an ex library copy but it seems as though it hasnt been read much, boards are jet black but has a small amount of white marks on it, the lettering is still very bright. The Inside front board has a section where the library lending sheet used to go but has been removed leaving some rmailns (this dosent show much when the dustjacket is on) there are also some stamps about 5 throughout the book (none of the stamps go over the text) and a pen park on the publication page (See pic).

Overall this is a very sharpe copy of the book and apart from when you see the stamps doesnt appear like a normal ex library copy would.

DUSTJACKET: Is in very good + condition and is from a 3rd impression. It is not priceclipped and has held its colour well the spine has not faded, it has had some light resoration done to spine and front and back panel.

Overall this is a very collectable book, the lowest price for a first in a first jacket on abebooks is £12,500 this is a first in a 3rd impression jacket.
