Further Additions To My Bond Book Collection

Last week I received two Bond books in the mail.  Both were "Dr No" movie tie-ins published by Pan books in 1962.  However unlike the existing copy of the same UK movie tie-in already in my collection, these two both display "Great Pan" on the cover instead of "Pan".  There are other differences and further details can be found on the Slight Cover Variations page of PizGloria.com under 11.  Here's a photo of the books (with many thanks to Alan T).

I also visited a couple of book stores selling new books.  The first was Thesaurus Books in Brighton where I purchased two books: "The Man With The Golden Typewriter" which is a collection of letters written by Ian Fleming and edited by Fergus Fleming, and a copy of "Goldfinger" published by Vintage to accompany the release of "Trigger Mortis" by Anthony Horowitz.

And finally, I also visited a Dymocks store where I saw a copy of the new Ian Fleming omnibus "The Spectre Trilogy" for sale.  I would have purchased it but I already have a copy on order.
