About This Item

First edition, first impression and first state with 'First published 1964' to copyright page.

Original black cloth with Japanese lettering to upper board in gilt and in English to spine in silver with bamboo patterned endpapers and paste-downs. Light traces of off-setting to endpapers, else near fine and beautifully clean and sharp throughout.

The original and unclipped dust jacket has a couple of isolated spots to verso and very shallow chips to corners with a couple of minuscule nicks to spine tips, otherwise an excellent, near fine example. Jacket design by Richard Chopping.

But Japan proves to be Bond's downfall, leading him to a mysterious residence known as the 'Castle of Death' where he encounters an old enemy revitalized. All the omens suggest that this is the end for the British agent and, for once, even Bond himself seems unable to disagree...
