World Book Night 2013 Edition Of "Casino Royale"

On April 23 of this year an event titled World Book Night occurred in the UK.  The event was designed to "celebrate books and spread the joy and love of reading".  Copies of 20 different book titles were given away by volunteers on the night for free.  One of those titles was "Casino Royale" published by Vintage.

While I knew that "World Book Night" was going to occur in the UK in April (thanks in part to John at The Book Bond) I was oblivious to the fact that a special edition of "Casino Royale" was going to be printed for the event.  Then a few weeks ago I received an email from a fellow Bond collector, Reuben, who explained that a special edition was available, and after a bit of searching I managed to find a copy for sale on the web and quickly purchased it.

Today the book arrived in the mail, and fortunately it was very well packaged because I think someone must have dropped a couple of bricks on it.  Luckily there was no damage to the book.

Here's some photos, and I've also already scanned and added it to the PizGloria website.

(No, it's not a consignment of drugs !)
