Why We Love This

The Book Of Bond by Kingsley Amis. London: Jonathan Cape, 1965. First printing, with Reversible Bookjacket For Work in The Field. Bond spoof by Kingsley Amis, under the name of Lt-Col. William ('Bill') Tanner. Gold end-papers; design and art direction by Raymond Hawkey. A fine copy, in a near fine, clipped jacket, reversible with biblical title on the verso and very small stain on back edge. A lovely example of this seminal, '60s tribute to the beginning of the Bond phenomenon.
