Published by Jonathan Cape, London; 1959. Bound in original black cloth boards, with skull decoration to front board and gilt title to the spine.The binding is square and tight and has just a touch of bumping to the spine ends. There are a couple of tiny marks to the front, but they are barely visible and the binding is otherwise very smart. Inside, the pages are clean and bright with just some slight toning and some slight darkening and staining to the top right corners of some pages. Overall, however, the pages are remarkably clean and bright. The book is housed in a facsimile dust jacket, which is in immaculate condition, appearing as new. The jacket complements the book perfectly, making it look as lovely as the day it was published. Overall, this is a very smart and collectible example of the seventh novel in Fleming's James Bond series. The name Goldfinger was chosen by Fleming to commemorate the architect Erno Goldfinger, who built his home in Hampstead, near to Fleming's. The novel centres on the investigation of MI6, and Bond's investigation into Auric Goldfinger and his gold smuggling activities. In doing so, Bond uncovers a much bigger plot, to steal the gold reserves of the USA from Fort Knox. This is a very collectible example of this first edition from the incredibly popular James Bond series.
