Item Description: Jonathan Cape, London, 1953. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed by the author, "To Edwina who helped in the birth-pangs. From The Author." With a letter of provenance from the original owner, who was a bilingual secretary to the Foreign Manager of Kemsley Newspapers, who was Ian Fleming." When Fleming was writing Casino Royale, Smith notes that "this copy was acquired on the first day of its publication." Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with the lightest of rubbing to the extremities. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Casino Royale was written by Ian Fleming in Jamaica over a period of around two months, largely from his own experiences and imagination; he also devised the artwork for the cover. "Within the first few pages Fleming had introduced most of Bond's idiosyncrasies and trademarks," which included his looks, his Bentley and his smoking and drinking habits. The full details of Bond's martini were kept until chapter seven of the book and Bond eventually named it "The Vesper", after Vesper Lynd" (Andrew Lycett). It has been filmed twice as a feature film, the first being the 1967 spoof starring David Niven, and later as the twenty-first official Bond film starring Daniel Craig as James Bond.

Item Description: London: Jonathan Cape, 1955, 1955. Octavo. Original black boards, titles to spine and front board in silver. With the dust jacket. Endpapers lightly tanned. An excellent copy in a bright jacket with slightly toned spine panel and a few small dark marks. First edition, first impression, one of two variant states, printed on thicker paper stock and with the word "shoot" at p. 10, l. 31 correctly printed. Presentation copy, inscribed and signed by Fleming on the front free endpaper: "To Clare, who washes my books behind the ears! Ian 1955." Clare served as executive secretary to Joseph Kingsbury-Smith, vice-president and general manager for Hearst's International News Service in New York. Kingsbury-Smith's spent much of his earlier career as foreign correspondent in various parts of Europe, including London where he befriended Fleming. He was the only reporter present at the Nuremburg executions and his groundbreaking interviews with various Soviet leaders (Stalin in 1949 and Krushchev in 1955) earned him a range of journalism prizes, including a Pulitzer and a George Polk Memorial Award. When visiting New York in the 1950s, Fleming would also visit Kingsbury-Smith in his offices and became friendly with Clare, who was a fan of his writing. In 1955, Fleming brought this copy from London and inscribed it to her. Gilbert A3. Bookseller Inventory # 108307

Item Description: Jonathan Cape, London, 1959. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "From Ian with love for Jo. May 6, 1959." The recipient is Josephine Hartford Bryce, husband Ivar Bryce, often cited as one of the primary models for James Bond. Fleming named the character Felix Leiter, Bond's friend and CIA operative, in part after Ivar Bryce, whose middle name was Felix. The Bryce's spent their summers at Black Hole Hollow Farm in Vermont, where Fleming was frequently a guest. He spent summers there hiking and plotting his Bond novels. Fleming first conceived the plot for Diamonds are Forever at the farm, and the primary setting of For Your Eyes Only, Echo Park in Vermont, is based on the farm. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A significant association copy. "In the first two months of 1958, Fleming wrote the first draft of Goldfinger under the working title The Richest Man in the World. This was destined to become a quintessential example of both the novels and the movies" (Biondi, 35). Made into the 1965 film starring Sean Connery as Bond and Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore.

Item Description: London: Jonathan Cape. 1963, 1963. 2 copies from the collection of Aubrey Forshaw; a 1963 first impression inscribed by the author, together with an annotated proof copy [issued 1962] in the proof-only dustwrapper. The hardcover volume is in very good condition; dustwrapper a little rubbed and nicked. With a signed presentation inscription to the flyleaf; "To Aubrey / who wrote some of it! / From Ian". The inscription relates to the passages corrected by Forshaw, particularly regarding motoring matters, as found within his proof copy of this title. The corrected softcover proof is in very good condition; the oversized dustwrapper has a few nicks and marks, with some creasing to the unsupprted area along the top edge. Both the book and jacket differ considerably to the published version. Laid in is a typed letter from Jonathan Cape chairman Michael Howard (drafted by Valerie Kettley) to Aubrey Forshaw, dated 10th December 1962 it reads "I finally got Ian to adopt a more intelligible variant of the offending back axle passage in OHMSS and I have checked that all the literals you marked have been corrected in the press proof. I have an idea you said you wanted your proof back and therefore return it herewith." All three items are housed in a purpose-made quarter leather clamshell box. Provenance: Aubrey Forshaw, Managing Director of Pan Books, publisher of the James Bond novels in paperback and Ian Fleming's expert for technical information concerning James Bond's cars. It was in this respect that he was asked by Fleming to read the proof of On Her Majesty's Secret Service and correct any errors. "the offending back axle passage" referred to in Michael Howard's letter appears on page 23, with Aubrey's corrections in pencil to the margins. Further corrections, suggestions and typographical errors appear in the margins elsewhere, all of which are adopted within the first edition text. An outstanding presentation with additional manuscript material relating to the tenth James Bond novel. References: Gilbert, pages 354-356, 645-6. Gilbert A11a (1.1). Bookseller Inventory # 39953

Item Description: London: Jonathan Cape. 1963., 1963. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, no. 9 of only 250 copies, being one of the AUTHOR'S OWN copies. Colour frontispiece of the author by Charles Amherst Villiers. Publisher's quarter vellum over black cloth. Gilt titles to spine. In original clear plastic wrapper. A fine copy, with one chip to the crown of the jacket. The only Signed Limited Edition of an Ian Fleming book. A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, being one of the author's personal copies (he received the first ten), and then presented to his close friend Amherst Villiers, the illustrator of this volume. Villiers ended up with three copies of this edition- this copy, and an out of series copy both given to him by Fleming, plus a later numbered copy which he personally ordered from the publisher. We have purchased all three copies from the family over the years. This particular example was then givel by Amherst to his son Charles Churchill Villiers (and as such does not have the Villiers bookplate the other two possess). It does however benefit from a loose autograph note from Amherst 'I gave this book to Charlie. I have another copy. Pa' Sold with a copy of the original sales invoice, signed by Villiers. Amherst Villiers had two children, the late Janie Villiers and Charles Churchill Villiers, godson of Sir Winston Churchill. Both made the acquaintance of Fleming bibliographer Jon Gilbert of Adrian Harrington Ltd., who interviewed them whilst researching the book. The Villiers family home was just a short walk from Harrington's bookshop in Kensington. Published in 1963, this is the second part of a collection of James Bond books that has become known as the 'Blofeld' trilogy, sitting between Thunderball (1961) and You Only Live Twice (1964). The title was filmed by Eon Productions in 1969, starring George Lazenby as 007, Diana Rigg as Tracy and Telly Savalas as Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Directed by Peter Hunt, with a terrific storyline and slick script from the ever-reliable screenwriter Richard Maibaum, O.H.M.S.S. features superb action, spectacular locations, a marvelous John Barry score, and, in Contessa Teresa de Vicenzo (aka Tracy, aka Mrs James Bond), probably the greatest Bond Girl of all time. The movie, unlike most in the series, was faithful to the original Ian Fleming novel and is a fine thriller; one of the grittiest movies of the series. Gilbert A11a. Bookseller Inventory # 39359

Item Description: London: Jonathan Cape, 1961, 1961. First Edition. Near fine in dust jacket. Presentation copy; inscribed by the author, "To Jonathan Miller from the Author." Fleming, an antiquarian book collector himself, was clearly very much aware of old conventions slipping away, and often adhered to this old custom of inscribing books from "the Author." In the nineteenth-century, it is not uncommon to find the closest associations; to a wife, mother, child, friend, etc., presented in this manner. In our day, this would seem cold, peculiar, or incomplete, but it does have a certain old-fashioned charm that antiquarian books are supposedly cherished for. Bookseller Inventory # 20996

Item Description: Jonathan Cape, London, 1963, 1963. First Impression, First State. DEDICATION COPY, signed by the author. Pp.223. Publisher's cloth-backed marbled paper over boards, titled in gilt to the spine, black endpapers, top edge stained black. With the pictorial dust-jacket designed by Paul Davis. Illustrated with photographic plates, and with erratum slip tipped in at page 223. Boards lightly rubbed and bumped at extremities; a very good copy, housed in a black quarter morocco clamshell box made by The Chelsea Bindery. The dedication copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, To / "a man called 'CD' "/ from / Ian. / (underscore). The printed author's note reads "Nothing remains but to dedicate this biased, cranky but at least zestful hotchpotch to my friends and colleagues on The Sunday Times in London and abroad, and particularly to a man called 'CD', who pulled the trigger". Sir Charles Denis Hamilton was a close friend and colleague of Ian Fleming, a director of Kemsley Newspapers and editor of the Sunday Times. Fleming had written seven James Bond novels when he was approached by Hamilton with a plum journalistic assignment: to take a five-week, all-expenses-paid trip to visit the world's most exciting cities. Fleming's trip took in Hong Kong, Macau and Tokyo, then Honolulu, and back home via the major US cities. The material he gathered for this book also furnished much of the backdrop and research for the five Bond novels and seven short stories that would follow.

Item Description: Cape, 1963. First edition. Original boards with 'ski tracks' design on the upper cover, in pictorial dustwrapper designed by Chopping. Author's presentation copy inscribed to Denise Robins on the front free endpaper "To Denise with best wishes from Ian". A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper indeed, red lettering on the spine faded as usual. In October 1963 Fleming presented the awards at the Romantic Novelists' Association, where he met Denise Robins, the then president of the Association, and they "chatted about the burning issue of their profession: should they cross the threshold of the bedroom?" (Lycett). It is likely that he gave Robins OHMSS around this time. Bookseller Inventory # 33742

The below is taken from 'The Diary of Sir Raymond Streat, Volume 2 1948: "Monday, January 5th On board R.M.S Mauretania. One day is much the same as another on board a great liner. There is consequently very little to add¿ Two evenings I have played bridge in the Captain¿s cabin with the Captain as my partner and Viscountess Rothermere and Ian Fleming as opponents. The gossip-mongers suspect an affair between these two, but it is no business of mine and they play bridge entertainingly."

He explains that these special copies were destined for Cape's Colonial offices in recognition of their overseas sales efforts.

Item Description: Jonathan Cape, London, 1958. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. HARDBACK - THIRD IMPRESSION - The book is in near fine condition. The book is signed by the author to the front end paper. Ian Fleming has signed the book I.L. Fleming instead of the customary Ian Fleming. This is the only time we have encountered a fleming signature, signed in this way. The book comes from the library of Stanley Meyer, who was a Hollywood producer, who met Fleming in 1956, and expressed an interest in buying the rights to film Live and Let Die and Moonraker. There is a neat Stanley and Dodo Meyer book plate to the centre of the front endpaper. The books boards are clean with just a small bump to the bottom corner of the front board. The inner pages are clean, and free of foxing. The dust wrapper is in near fine condition, with no loss, and is correctly priced at 13s.6d.net. A very nice association copy. Signed by Author.
