Peter Harrington is extremely pleased to present this exceptional collection of Ian Fleming material, which we will be exhibiting at this year’s Masterpiece London fair. The most significant Fleming collection ever to appear on the market, it contains inscribed first editions of every James Bond book published in the author’s lifetime.
Amongst these inscriptions are some sensational associations: Live and Let Die inscribed to Winston Churchill; Moonraker to Raymond Chandler; The Spy Who Loved Me to Robert Kennedy; and From Russia with Love bearing a strikingly personal inscription from Fleming to his wife.
Also present are a number of manuscripts, pre-publication proofs, advance copies and ephemera, and a number of books from Fleming’s personal library. These include a notebook kept by Fleming on a trip to Japan, books from his childhood and a copy of Raymond Chandler’s last novel inscribed Fleming by the author.
The collection will be exhibited on our stand at this year’s Masterpiece fair, which will take place from the 27th June to the 3rd July. We will be exhibiting on stand D4.
