From Russia With Love 1957 1st print in rare "proof" wrapper.
From Russia With Love 1957 1st print in bright unfaded wrapper.
This is a scarce final proof version of the publishers jacket with Square corners and the printers markings visible - rare in this state. Some light wear with splitting joints and a handful of small tape shadows. A rare copy that is very clean and bright. It is very difficult to find a From Russia With Love without damage let alone a final proof state version of the jacket. The printers proofs were basically jackets that were printed to check dimensions and colour. This one is price clipped. Due to demand they often found themselves actually on a book. Please note this is not the rarest "proof" jacket which has a blank back and only a few are out there.
The book is in very good condition with clean tight binding and fresh pages and page edges. There is a neat ownership name to FFEP and small sticker to inside front board.
A fine book in a VG+ wrapper. Would grace any collection.
