More Information
The fourth book in the set with a print run of 14,700 copies. Once again not a rare title but fine copies are difficult to find, spine lettering tends to fade and rear panels discolour and get dusty. A fresh unspoilt copy will attract quite a premium over a 'run of the mill' copy. Jackets should be checked carefully to ensure no later titles appear. The book was adapted and saw the return of Sean Connery to the role.
