Penguin Books / Doubleday, in association with Bentley Motors, 2008. [James Bond thriller] FIRST EDITION. LIMITED EDITION, Large Paper copies, number 102 of 300. With a note to this edition, a foreword by the chief designer of Bentley Motors, and a brief biography of Ian Fleming. Superbly bound in full dark brown leather, with hand-stitching to covers, with red leather doublures and limited edition plate, all edges coloured red. The leather used for the boards is the same as is used for the upholstery in Bentley cars, and the red leather inside is the same as the hide used on the dashboard. Each book comes with a pewter cast model car, the same as Bond drives in the novel. The car is housed in a die-cut section of the pages to the lower margin, and the whole book is housed in a custom made perspex slipcase. A superb book production, limited to just 300 copies worldwide Wrapped in original greaseproof paper, set within a foam-lined outer card carton with Bentley Motors label applied. The book and perspex case are absolutely fine and unopened (a previous stock photo has been used). Minor wear to carton, foam lining sheet has toned over time (as all do).
