London: Jonathan Cape, 1959.
First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a fine dust jacket. A very sharp copy of the seventh novel in the James Bond series.
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.
