More Information
The final, and posthumous Fleming title with a print run of 50,000 copies. The majority of copies have re-priced jackets and serious collectors should seek out an unclipped copy and also one that shows no signs of label removal over the original price. The book is in fact 2 short stories both of which were later adapted for films. Octopussy is often the natural starting point for Fleming collectors and its availability is such that only a nice clean copy should be bought. Condition is everything in this field and whilst ambitions may need to be lowered for the early titles only nice copies of late titles should be considered by anyone building a serious collection. We hope you have found these bibliographies useful.
