Topic: Ian Fleming James Bond 007 In Pan Books 1st Editions - Complete Collec

Fellow Bond fans - my short video looking at the 1st UK Pan Paperback novels is now live on YouTube here;

https://youtu.be/j1u2ivAb3j4

Please take a look - can anyone explain why On Her Majesty's Secret Service is so scarce and expensive?

Direct link to my channel for lots of similar content including a specific Bond playlist is here;

Another great video, Jules.

I have no idea why OHMSS should be so pricey either, although it is regarded as a particularly good piece of cover art. Given I paid £57 for MR, I can't justify any more than £100 for OHMSS  ajb007/martini  ajb007/martini  ajb007/martini

I have couple of 1st edits (CR, MR, L&LD) but find them generally too expensive. I was disappointed you didn't mention how the tag lines and back covers alter by editions/year/artist, as I find this fascinating. Perhaps it needs a more concentrated video, focussing on the timeline of the different artists / cover art. I've done web research on this and usually end up head buried in hands!

Looking forward to the Tie-In Video, as I have them all so have nothing to be jealous of - but I bet you find something I don't have!

Hi Chris,
Thanks for the comment and those kind words. I know what you mean about the current prices, they do seem very expensive although it sounds like you got a bargain with Moonraker.

I am almost ready for my movie tie-ins video. I'm pretty sure I have them all, but some are pretty low grade and I'd like to source better copies before I shoot the video. I do have a couple of rarities, including a Pan display stand and a signed MWTGG (by some actors, not Fleming) to share.

I know what you mean about the changes tag lines and images on the back, maybe i'll analyse a specific novel, in all it's various editions in the future?

Cheers, Jules.
