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. First edition, first printing. Inscribed presentation copy. Publisher's original black cloth with silver titles to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. An important presentation copy. A fine copy in the lightly rubbed and spine faded dustwrapper. Not price-clipped. Housed in a black purpose made folding morocco box with the titles in gilt to the spine. An exceptional association copy. Inscribed by the author in blue ink on the front free endpaper to his close friend and primary model for James Bond, Ivar Bryce "To Ivar / Vol III of the / Collected Works. / Ian." A finer association copy is scarcely imaginable. Bryce first met Fleming in 1917. They both attended Eton College and during the Second World War, worked for the head of the British Security Coordination, based in New York (along with other noted members Roald Dahl and David Ogilvy). For part of the war, Bryce was based in Jamaica and later helped Fleming find the plot of land to build "Goldeneye", where the Bond novels would later be written. Fleming dedicated Diamonds Are Forever, to (among others) his friend Ivar, and named the character Felix Leiter, Bond’s friend and CIA operative, after him (his middle name was Felix). Provenance: John Felix Charles Bryce ("Ivar"); Josephine Hartford Bryce; Nuala O’Donnell Pell (Jo Bryce's daughter from an earlier marriage, and the wife of Senator Claiborne Pell).

Item Description: London: Jonathan Cape, 1955, 1955. Octavo. Original black boards, titles to spine and front board in silver. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom quarter black morocco solander box. 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. 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. The copy is one of two variant states of the first impression, printed on thicker paper stock and with the word "shoot" at p. 10, l. 31 correctly printed. Gilbert A3. Bookseller Inventory # 108307

Item Description: Jonathan Cape, London, 1955. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. HARDBACK - A very good book that has been Inscribed by the author to the front end paper. The inscription reads - TO JOYCE / THE HAPPY GHOST / FROM / IAN FLEMING / 1955. The Joyce in question was Joyce Emerson (1921-1979) who worked at the Sunday Times during the 1950's and 60's, working on the Atticus team alongside Ian Fleming and probably, as the inscription suggests, ghost writing some of his pieces for him. The book is free of any owner names or inscriptions, with the correctly printed SHOOT found to page ten. The dust wrapper is in very good condition. There is the usual fading to the red flames found to the spine. The dust wrapper is correctly priced at 10s.6d net to both the front and rear flaps. An incredibly scarce title to acquire, signed and inscribed by the author. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 001153

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, 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

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.

The gossip-mongers suspect an affair between these two, but it is no business of mine and they play bridge entertainingly."

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.
