For Your Eyes Only by Ian Fleming, 1st Edition in Original Dust Jacket, 1960

First edition of Fleming’s eighth Bond title, the only collection of Bond short stories published in Fleming’s lifetime, including the title story, “From a View to a Kill,” and “Quantum of Solace.”

This five-story collection has “the only British dust jacket with any depiction of Bond: the eye in the peephole is Bond. Fleming made [artist Richard] Chopping paint it many times, until he was satisfied with the shape and, particularly, the color”. “For Your Eyes Only” was made into the 1981 film starring Roger Moore and Carole Bouquet; the 1985 film A View to a Kill starred Moore, Christopher Walken, and Grace Jones; the 2008 film Quantum of Solace starred Daniel Craig.

This first edition copy features the original black cloth boards with gilt lettering and eye design embossed on front cover. Additionally, this volume features the true first edition dust jacket with all identification points.
