Complete Set of Ian Fleming 007 Novels for £15

Hi folks
I'm not sure if this is appropriate forum for this and its aimed at UK 007 fans mainly. Yesterday whilst shopping in one of the large Tesco supermarkets I spotted boxed sets of all the Ian Fleming James Bond novels/short story collections for just £15. The covers are the US 1950s style covers as opposed to the silver 20th Century Classics which have photos on them. I'd buy a set myself but as I've got them all as 2nd hand Pan editions from the 60s it would be overkill. However for anyone interested in picking them up, given that they're usually sold for £6 or £7 individually I'd say its a bargain. The James Bond Encyclopedia was also available for £10. This is to do with the centeniary of Fleming's Birth. I assume this offer wasn't unique to the Tesco in Cardiff that I saw them in.

That's pretty good, I'd get a set myself if they were available here. Though I admit I prefer the covers that came on the Pan editions in the 70s.

I just need to pick up Casino Royale, Live And Let Die, and Diamonds Are Forever and I'll have all the books, with those wonderfully colourful pulp-style covers.

For those not close to a Tesco, you can also get them here;
