James Bond: A Collection of Books and Manuscripts, The Property of a Gentleman

Sotheby’s is delighted to present 007: a collection of books and manuscripts, the property of a gentleman. The collection is undoubtedly the most significant collection of Fleming ever to appear on the market. The sale features inscribed first editions of every James Bond book including: 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 to Fleming's wife.

Highlights also include the final revised typescript for Diamonds are Forever, a number of pre-publication proofs, and the copy of Casino Royale that first put James Bond on screen. Beyond Bond, a remarkable selection of books from Fleming’s own library, also feature.

This exceptional collection includes extremely desirable pieces and is a testament to a discerning and sophisticated collector.
