Near fine, bright and clean, with the usual fading to the spine lettering, spine lightly toned, mild wear to the spine end with some small creases, mild soiling. A very good copy. Gilbert A8a 1.1. For Your Eyes Only is a collection of five short stories that marks a departure from Fleming's previous novel-length Bond tales. Specifically, this volume includes "From a View to a Kill," "For Your Eyes Only," "Quantum of Solace," "Risico," and "The Hildebrand Rarity." Interestingly, each of the stories has lent itself to one of the modern Bond films, whether in plot elements or title: A View to a Kill, For Your Eyes Only, License to Kill, Quantum of Solace, and Spectre.
