London: Jonathan Cape, 1968. First Edition. Colonel Sun
Markham, Robert [Amis, Kingsley]
Jonathan Cape. London. 1968
The first continuation of the James Bond series, following the death of Ian Fleming. While attributed to Robert Markham, this name is a pseudonym for novelist, poet and critic, Kinglsey Amis. Amis was famously critical of the Bond books, penning opinion pieces both in his own name (The Bond Dossier) or under the pseudonym Lt.-Col William "Bill" Tanner".
Colonel Sun was serialized in The Daily Express between March 18-30, 1968. The story itself is modelled after the author's time in Greece, with many subtle details that reflect his own holidays and inspiration. Jacket shows minor rubbing but is in great condition, shielded by clear protector. Jacket painting by Tom Adams. An attractive copy. Very Good +. Item #314
