New York, NY: New American Library, 1963. [Spy novel] FIRST U.S. EDITION. A superb association copy, INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO HUGH HEFNER. Octavo (22 x 14cm), pp.299; [1], blank. Cloth-backed blue paper-covered boards, decorated in gilt to spine, ochre top edge and endpapers, illustrated jacket priced at $4.50. With presentation note to flyleaf: "To | Hugh Hefner | from | Ian Fleming (underscore)". Some bumping, jacket a little nicked and creased. Very good indeed, in a modern clamshell box. A significant copy; Hugh Hefner (1926-2017) was the founder and editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine, in which several James Bond stories first appeared. This title, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, was the first of Ian Fleming's novels to be serialised there. Following his recent death, some 800 volumes from the Hugh M. Hefner collection were exhibited at Rare Books LA in Pasadena, including the present volume, which was the only inscribed Ian Fleming book he retained in his library. According to the later Bond novelist Raymond Benson "the appearances of Fleming's work in Playboy did much to perpetuate the Bond/Playboy image in the early days of the author's fame in America" (The James Bond Bedside Companion, p.24). Signed American First Edition titles are extremely scarce; only four U.S. books are recorded sold at auction (Casino Royale, 2009), Thrilling Cities (2008), Dr No (2008) and Goldfinger (1999).

We have 16 copies available starting at €57.51.

With 42 wood engraved plates by Benett, including a frontispiece. Publisher's blue cloth with gilt titles and black, brown and white decoration to spine and upper. All edges gilt; cream endpapers. Two plates tipped back in, with a little rubbing to edges. Some very minor occasional marks to leaves, and a gentle tobacco scent. Heavy rubbing to cloth, with some colour lost to both boards, and toning to spine. Very good. A thrilling tale of round the world air travel under the the wing of Robur the master engineer, all the more remarkable for the fact that it was written a good fourteen years before the Wright brothers first got their ideas off the ground. First published in French in 1886, and the rarest mid-period Verne in English.
