“On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” in Danish Reader’s Digest (1967)

On April 3, 1967 the Danish branch of Reader's Digest published a volume of "Det Bedstes bøger" featuring an abridged version of Ian Fleming's James Bond novel "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". The text, running 127 pages, utilized Rita Damm's translation from the Danish first and third edition (issued by Skrifola, 1965 and Rosenkilde & Bahnhof, 2012).  Also featured were four illustrations by Ulrik Schramm, pictured below, and a short biography of Ian Fleming.

Happy holidays from James Bond•O•Rama.dk to all our foreign readers.
