FLEMING, Ian. Goldfinger. London: Jonathan Cape, 1961.
8o. Original black boards, decorated in blind and gilt; pictorial dust jacket designed by Richard Chopping; quarter morocco folding case with onlaid morocco panel based on cover design.
FIRST EDITION. This novel incited in Fleming even more excitement than usual. It is the longest of all Bond narratives. Fleming called Goldfinger "the next volume of my autobiography" (John Pearson The Life of Ian Fleming London, 1966). Anthony Burgess included this title in his 99 Novels: The Best in English since 1939. A VERY FINE COPY.
