Item #IF178 Dr. No. Ian Fleming.

Dr. No

Chopping, Richard. Hard Cover. London: Jonathan Cape, 1958. First Edition. Fine / Very Good.


First edition, first impression of the sixth novel in the James Bond series. Publisher's black cloth, with a silhouette of a dancing woman ('Honeychile') on the front board in dark brown, spine lettered in metallic silver. A fine copy with some slight bowing to the boards; in a very good or better unclipped jacket with some light wear and a few tiny chips to the extremities, mostly to spine ends and corner. A very attractive and clean copy. Gilbert A6a (1.2). In this Bond adventure, 007 heads to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of an MI6 agent in what should be "a time-wasting, shabby little case in the Caribbean." However, an early attack on Bond's life quickly exposes the seriousness of the situation, and Bond discovers a series of island mysteries all relating back to the villainous Dr. Julius No, a Chinese-German reclusive criminal with metal pincers for hands. Although it is the sixth story in the 007 series, Dr. No is the first Bond book to be adapted into a film, perhaps because it contains one of Fleming's most bizarre and twisted villains.
