What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

'The Man with the Golden Gun' is the best-selling final novel of Fleming's Bond series. The work follows Bond as he seeks to assassinate Francisco Scaramanga, the 'Man with the Golden Gun'. It was adapted in 1974, featuring Roger Moore as Bond and Christopher Lee as the villain.

Ian Fleming (1908-1964) was a British journalist, intelligence officer and writer. His 'James Bond' series is one of the most influential pieces of spy fiction, having sold over one hundred million copies worldwide. It has spanned an extremely popular film series, featuring seven actors starring as the titular character. 

In the second state binding, as is most common with this work. 

Complete with the original Richard Chopping dustwrapper.

A smart example of this influential Bond work.

This copy came from the library at Julians Park, Hertfordshire, the previous home of Audrey Pleydell-Bouverie (1902-1968). She was an English socialite and through her mother was the illegitimate granddaughter of King Edward VII.
