How it works


With two black and white photos and five bird sketches. An entertaining account of how Ian Fleming used the name of an American ornithologist who wrote a book about West Indian birds, for his fictional secret agent, including details of the only meeting between Fleming and the real James Bond; 62pp.

Book condition: green cloth boards in very good condition, end-papers unmarked, text and binding good except for previous owner ink stamps on title page and various other random places throughout the book (mostly in the margins).

Jacket condition: very good, not price-clipped, wear to edges; small patch of loss to head of spine, rear panel rubbed. Two owner ink-stamps on inside of rear panel, which have now leached through. The jacket is now protected by a Brodart plastic sleeve.
