007 MAGAZINE Collectors' Guide to
James Bond UK PAN Paperbacks APPENDIX A
Complete checklist by title of all cover variations

WRITTEN & COMPILED BY KEVIN HARPER

The books presented on this page are displayed in the order that Ian Fleming's James Bond novels were first issued in paperback in the UK, and illustrates the different covers for each title published by PAN Books. The dates shown below each title denote the first printing with this cover. It is possible to find some copies of PAN paperbacks that were bound using earlier sets of pages with covers not usually associated with that printing. These copies were generally bound to use up surplus stock of existing pages rather than destroy them, or used on export editions of the novels. This explains why some editions are listed with the same printing but a different cover. For example the all three editions of the 1969 film tie-in paperback of ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE were bound using sheets printed in 1965.

*Export Edition
The first three printings of ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE were for export only, and it was not until the 4th printing released on May 7, 1965 that the novel was widely available in the UK. Collectors should note that the first three printings had the title in blue, whereas from the 4th printing it was green. The rear of the export editions featured Cecil Beaton's photograph of Ian Fleming which was replaced by the Horst Tappe portrait on the UK versions. With the exception of the Canadian edition which states 60c on the cover, export copies were un-priced.
