Captain's Library: DOCTOR NO Part 2

Sent to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of a British undercover agent, James Bond is given a ride from the airport by a driver who claims to be sent by the local authorities.
But, a quick phone call reveals the chauffeur is, in fact, an enemy agent!
When confronted with the truth, the driver attacks 007...
That simple phone call will set in motion a series of events that will result in the discovery of vital well as several deaths!
Be here tomorrow for more deceit and treachery (along with some violence)!
Originally-published in England in 1962 as an issue of Classics Illustrated, it was considered inappropriate for CI's American audience, so the project was turned over to DC Comics, which made some changes in both text and art due to racial content and (on pages 16-17) a tarantula which was removed from the American version, then published it as part of their anthology series Showcase in early 1963.
Below are b/w scans of the original British versions of pages 12-17 which you can compare with the pages above.
NOTE: May be NSFW due to racial stereotypes!
