Somerset: Dateman Books, 2008. [James Bond] COMPLETE JAMES BOND. 14 volumes; All First (and only) impressions. Publisher's hardcover in illustrated dustjacket, with collector card in clear sleeve. All fourteen book packs housed in an elegant octavo-sized bespoke half black leather collector's box, with individual book compartments and felt-lining. Contents and box as new. A handsome presentation of a rare item. Each book has been hand-bound and reprints the entire first chapter of the original James Bond story. The jackets reproduce the artwork of the (full size) 2008 Centenary Edition hardbacks, with illustrations by Michael Gillette. The first miniature edition of the James Bond series, and according to Dateman, it is believed this is the first set of works in this format from a major modern writer. The print run, like the books themselves, appears to have been very small indeed; these quickly disappeared from the publisher's inventory and have since vanished from the second hand market.
