More Information
The eight book in the series is actually 5 short stories, From a View to a Kill, For Your Eyes Only, Quantum of Solace, Risico and The Hilderbrand Rarity. 21,712 copies were published and it is famously the only jacket to depict Bond, albeit only his eye. Obtaining a copy in a fine jacket is a matter of some patience, and expense, as it was the only jacket to be glossed. This turned out to be notoriously fragile and prone to rubbing. The red lettering to spine is almost always faded and bright copies are worth considerably more than the usual fare.
