  1. What is the Penguin edition on the bottom right of the photo? Was there a whole set of Fleming with these covers? I haven't seen this.

  2. From Russia With Love and Casino Royale were both published in Australia as Popular Penguin editions in 2009-10. It’s a range of hundreds of Penguin books, each sold for $10 a pop. I believe these were the only two Bond novels published under this imprint.
