London: Jonathan Cape, 1959. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Small name plate to the front gutter, fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to the extremities. A very nice example. Goldfinger originally bore the title The Richest Man in the World. Based upon American gold tycoon Charles W. Englehard, Fleming named his villain after British architect Erno Goldfinger. When the actual Goldfinger found out his name was being used, he threatened to sue Fleming, and the matter was ultimately settled out of court. A best-seller upon its release, it became the third James Bond film in 1964 starring Sean Connery. (Inventory #: 7221)
