More Information
The seventh book with a print run of 24,000 copies. The book is also noted amongst golfing collectors and enthusiasts for the extensive game between Bond and Goldfinger. The book is not overly difficult to find although clean and fresh copies are not common. Jacket spines tend to brown easily and the white rear panel is often grubby. Chopping's jacket is superb, probably the best in the series. The adaptation of the book for cinema resulted in what many feel to be the best of all the films.
