London: Pan Books, 1960s. JAMES BOND PAPERBACKS. 14 volumes, octavo (18 x 12 x 18). A vintage set of Pan paperbacks in the classic 'X' series with cover artwork and bold 'James Bond' lettering after designs by Raymond Hawkey. Some toning to cheap paperstock, discreet owner name in two volumes, book shop stamp to 'The Spy Who Loved Me', lightly handled with no significant defects. A very good to near fine set. Most attractive. Introduced in 1963, the stylish 'X' series featured "iconic JAMES BOND lettering, being larger and bolder than either the book title or the author's name. His [Hawkey's] cover art was applauded by Fleming and remained unchanged until 1969" (Gilbert p.36, 311). Item #56843
