Get This: Carte Blanche, Signed Edition

As a new era in James Bond is about to be unleashed in the literary world, publishers and book sellers alike are readying themselves for the onslaught of buyers. Jeffrey Deaver's Carte Blanche is being released here in the U.S. next week, but already released is the U.K. edition as well as several signed, limited editions.

The signed, limited edition of 750, housed in a presentation box (also listed as slip-cased or tray-cased). These are listing for £275 (US$450) on Abe Books.

The 300-500 copy Bentley edition (to be released after July 20th, 2011). Hodder & Stoughton is listing this for £1,799.99 (or US$2,943.74). Each copy of the Special Edition is custom-produced to Bentley’s exacting standards and arrives inside a stunning metal case.
