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, Edwina C. Smith, 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: 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.

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.

Item Description: London: Jonathan Cape. 1963., 1963. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, only 250 copies. IAN FLEMING'S OWN COPY. 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. & 1963, 1962. First edition, first printing together with the Uncorrected Proof Copy. The first an inscribed presentation copy. Original cloth in dustwrapper. A very good copy, in the very good rubbed and nicked original dustwrapper. Not price-clipped. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper "To Aubrey / who wrote some of it! / From Ian". The uncorrected proof copy; bound in the publisher’s original card covers, in dustwrapper. A very good copy in the very good rubbed and nicked oversized proof dustwrapper which differs considerably from the published version. Laid in is a typed letter from Jonathan Cape chairman Michael Howard 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 O. H. M. S. S. 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." 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 to the first edition text. An outstanding presentation and association, and genuine working manuscript of the tenth James Bond novel. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.

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

THE AUTHOR'S COPY, in a bespoke quarter leather binding of half brown morocco, gilt, commissioned by the publisher for presentation to Amis. Obviously a unique copy, this was likely bound by Ian Fleming's own binder Arthur Last, the style matching closely the author's copies of Cape's original Bond novels now residing at the Lilly Library and researched by Gilbert while producing the forthcoming bibliography. Amis' presentation binding also features his initials tooled in gilt. A typed statement is included, noting this as being the only such copy produced for him, SIGNED in full by Amis. Owned in conjuction with Lucius Books of York. After Ian Fleming's death in 1964, [copyright holders] Glidrose decided to continue the Bond franchise with a series of well-known authors each writing a book under a pen-name. However, only Kingsley Amis took up the offer [writing as 'Robert Markham'], and in 1968 his 007 novel, 'Colonel Sun' was published. Although initial sales proved disappointing, Bond fans now consider it a classic, with a gritty, fast-paced story written in a polished style by the established Amis [effectively re-creating the famous 'Fleming sweep']. Already a part of the 'Bond Family', Amis had previously written a popular critical work on the secret agent entitled 'The James Bond Dossier' (1965), plus the light-hearted 'Book of Bond' (1965), and he was therefore an ideal candidate; at the time, rumours circulated that Amis finished 'The Man With The Golden Gun' upon Fleming's death (only the first draft of the novel had been completed) and that 'Colonel Sun' was offered as an incentive from Glidrose. Haining; Crime Fiction p206. BMC No.1 p.4-13 'James Bond Revivals'. Hubin; Crime Fiction IV. Gilbert, Jon; Ian Fleming: The Bibliography, page 602. Bookseller Inventory # 38444
