About this Item: Cape, 1955. First edition. Original black cloth with silver embossed titles, in striking 'flames' dustwrapper. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front endpaper, "To Clare / Who washes my books behind the ears! / Ian 1955." A fine copy in a near fine dustwrapper which shows the usual dulling to the spine but is crisp and clean. Clare was secretary to Fleming's friend the journalist, Joseph Kingsbury-Smith, national editor and chief foreign writer of Hearst Newspapers in New York, whom Fleming had met during the war. Clare was a fan Fleming's novels and received this presentation copy on one of Fleming's visits to New York. The third James Bond book, in which Fleming's narrative style, now well established, displays his own brand of polished suspense. Cape's confidence in Fleming is evident as well: 10,500 copies of the first edition were published. However the materials used for the dustwrapper (cheap, soft paper printed in orange and yellow, which fades, on a white background, which soils) means that well preserved copies are quite scarce and presentation copies even more so.

About this Item: Jonathan Cape, London, 1955. Hard Cover. 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. Seller Inventory # 001153

About this Item: 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).
