  1. Hi John! What can you tell us about the archive material included? While these look splendid, I have too many Fleming books and am trying to be a little more frugal. Are these must own?

    1. The John Cork introductions are superb. Far and away the best introductions ever written for the Bond books. Extra material is also nice. I'm happy to have these as my new reading copies.

  2. I think I prefer the Folio editions.
    The art work by Fay Dalton makes them really quite uniqe.

  3. I shall be in London next week, and can look these over; I shall probably buy the CASINO ROYALE in any event...

    1. If you've seen the last series of Rex Stout/Nero Wolfe paperbacks, these are very similar, with letters and notes from the time of original publication (about 8-10 pages worth). LIVE AND LET DIE collates the original British and American texts for a "new" version of the novel, not published before in the U.K.
