A first US edition hardback with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.  In good condition for its age.  Bumped at head and tail of book spine.  Age tanning to pages and light foxing to leading edges of pages, not affecting text.  The dust jacket is complete, still shows the price, but is showing signs of wear at the extremities.  Two small nicks at the bottom edge of the jacket and one on rear panel and also at the edge of the fold in on rear panel.  Some tanning internally.

A James Bond novel.
