    First edition of the first novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original black cloth. Boldly signed by Ian Fleming on the front free endpaper. From the library of Mrs. Bowker. This example was given by Fleming to his his char-lady. Near fine in a near fine first state dust jacket (without the Sunday Times review on the inner front flap) with some professional restoration 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.

    First edition, first impression, in the first issue dust jacket, without the Sunday Times review on the front flap. According to Biondi and Pickard, the jacket "is genuinely rare in fresh condition", as here. The author's first work, it saw an initial print run of 4,760 copies, of which 4,728were bound up. "Many of these went to public libraries and we believe that less than half of the first printing was sold to the public" (Biondi & Pickard). Fleming wrote this and the subsequent Bond novels at his Goldeneye estate in Jamaica, where he resided from January to February each year as part of his contracted holiday leave as foreign news manager of Kemsley Newspapers. As Fleming himself stated, his goal with Casino Royale was to write "the spy novel of all spy novels" (cited in Gilbert). Biondi & Pickard 40; Gilbert A1a (1.1). Octavo. Original black boards, spine lettered in red, heart device on front cover in red, bottom edge untrimmed. With dust jacket. A few marks to covers, contents fresh; jacket remarkably crisp and bright, vertical crease on front spine fold, couple of small splash marks to front flap, unclipped: a near-fine copy in like jacket.

    First American edition, first impression. Inscribed association copy. Publisher's original green cloth with red titles to the upper board and spine, in the Leo Manso designed dustwrapper. A very good or better copy, the binding square and the cloth fresh. Minor bumping to the spine tips and a small nick towards the base of the spine. The contents, with some foxing to the edge of the endpapers and closed text block edge are otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that has a couple of short closed tears but remains uncommonly bright and attractive. Housed in a bespoke, quarter black morocco solander case. Inscribed by Ian Fleming in blue ball point pen to the front endpaper "To Paul / who wrote the golden words / from / the author / 1954". A superlative association copy, inscribed by Fleming to his great friend and early James Bond champion, Paul Gallico. American novelist and short story writer Paul Gallico, worked with Fleming at The Sunday Times. He was one of the first people to read the manuscript of Casino Royale, providing Fleming with encouragement to publish. The "golden words" to which the author refers in his inscription are printed in red on the front flap of the first edition dustwrapper "PAUL GALLICO calls CASINO ROYALE "The best gambling thriller I have ever read. Fabulously exciting." Jon Gilbert in his award winning bibliography of Ian Fleming writes "Paul Gallico was not only a fan but was of particular help getting Casino Royale published in the United States, where initially the book seemed difficult to place. Unlike the British Cape editions, very few American editions appear to have been inscribed by the author". We are aware of only one other inscribed American first edition (the Stanley Meyer copy also noted in the bibliography). The author's first book, introducing 007 James Bond. First American edition, first printing, second state with the front flap of dustwrapper clipped to the corners and with the printed price of $2.75. [Gilbert A1b (1.2).] Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

    First edition. 8vo. Original black cloth with red heart vignette on upper cover and titles on the spine, in gun metal grey dustwrapper designed by the author. A fine copy in a very good dustwrapper indeed, which is bright and clean with just trivial wear to corners, a short closed tear to the upper panel and a strip of browning to the rear panel. The author's first book and the first appearance of James Bond, who has probably had a greater impact on society and popular culture than any other fictitious character since Sherlock Holmes. 4,728 copies of the first impression were printed, although no more than 3000 were issued in the first state dustwrapper, the remainder having a favourable Sunday Times review overprinted on the front flap. A significant proportion of the first printing would have been sold to libraries and the remainder were well read, making well preserved copies ever more uncommon. "Ian Fleming has discovered the secret of narrative art. the reader has to go on reading" - John Betjeman (review in The Daily Telegraph). Gilbert A1a(1.1).

    Octavo. Original black boards, spine lettered in red, red heart device on front cover. With dust jacket. Housed in a custom blue quarter morocco solander box. Edges foxed, sporadically affecting margins, contents clean. A very good copy in like, gently foxed jacket, not price-clipped, couple of nicks and short closed tears, a bright and sharp example. First edition, second impression, presentation copy, inscribed by the author in the year of publication on the front free endpaper, "To Tanis and Teddy Read and burn! from The Author. Aoüt 1953". The married couple Tanis and Teddy resided with the Flemings at their Goldeneye estate the following year for, in Ann Fleming's words, "twelve interminable days" (quoted in Lycett). The endless flirting between Tanis Eva Bulkeley Guinness (1908-1993) and Charles "Teddy" Edward Harold John Phillips (1907-2006) proved to be a nuisance to Ian Fleming; in early 1954, attempting to write Moonraker (1955), his concentration was frequently interrupted by their pet names of "Bear" and "Lion". "At one stage Ian was driven to announce at the luncheon table that he and Ann were going away for a short while, and that their visitors could, of course, continue to use the house. Since Ann had not been informed of this ploy, it caused some embarrassment. Ann had to produce some clever social footwork, which only resulted in Ian accusing her of being a traitor" (Lycett). Following this confrontation, temperatures cooled; the Flemings were not driven out of their own home, and Tanis and Teddy would subsequently offer their hosts two bottles of whisky as an apology. Interestingly, Teddy was a relative of Ian Fleming's intimate friend Ivar Bryce, who was instrumental in finding for Fleming the Goldeneye estate, on Jamaica's north shore. Fleming wrote the Bond novels with the assistance of an unusual clause in his contract as foreign news manager of Kemsley Newspapers: Fleming would take January and February as his annual paid leave, during which time he worked on his novels at Goldeneye. Casino Royale, the first of the Bond novels, was first published earlier the same year. This copy is from the significant Ian Fleming collection of Martin Schøyen (b.1940), with his bookplate. Schøyen's private collection of manuscripts, which span all cultures and all time periods, is one of the largest and most comprehensive of its kind. Gilbert A1a(2); The Schøyen Collection No. 3. Andrew Lycett, Ian Fleming: The Man Who Created James Bond, 2012; Edward Abel Smith, Ian Fleming's Inspiration: The Truth Behind the Books, 2020, p. 159.

    Second edition, fifth impression, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To CD from Ian". Sir Charles Denis Hamilton was a decorated veteran of the Second World War, "an outstanding natural newspaperman", a close friend of Fleming, and a fellow board member at the Kemsley News Group. As a columnist, much of Ian Fleming's journalism was published in the Sunday Times when Hamilton was editor-in-chief. In 1962 the inaugural issue of the ST Magazine featured the James Bond novella The Living Daylights. Hamilton also championed Fleming's Thrilling Cities travel articles, later being the dedicatee of the book edition. The first James Bond novel, Casino Royale was originally published in 1953. After two reprints, the work was entirely reset in 1957 and featured a dust jacket design by Patricia Marriott (1920-2002). Marriott also designed the dust jackets for two further Cape-published James Bond novels, Diamonds are Forever (1956) and Dr No (1958). Her husband, Michael Howard (1923-1974), was Fleming's literary advisor and a director at Cape. The 1963 impression was the fifth impression of the second edition and is also noted by Gilbert as the "eighth printing". This was, crucially, the final Cape printing of the author's debut novel to be published during his lifetime. This copy is from the library of the Fleming bibliographer Jon Gilbert, with his bookplate and signed catalogue description loosely inserted. Gilbert A1a(8). Harold Hobson, Phillip Knightley and Leonard Russell, The Pearl of Days: An Intimate Memoir of the Sunday Times, 1972. Octavo. Original black boards, spine lettered in red, red heart device on front cover. With dust jacket. Housed in a custom black morocco-backed folding box. Minor foxing to edges, extremities of jacket a little rubbed, unclipped; a fine copy in a near-fine jacket.

    First US editions, first printings, of this complete set of Fleming's original James Bond books, which played a notable influence on American society during the Cold War. The CIA director Allen Dulles (1893-1969) was a close friend of Fleming and a great champion of the Bond novels in America, actively promoting them in the American press as a means of elevating public support for secretive intelligence agencies. This raised eyebrows among certain of Dulles's peers, who viewed the Bond novels as a salacious and populist misconstruction of intelligence work. Nevertheless, "Dulles liked Bond because the series was an unashamed celebration of the spy business. Despite being something of a blithe anachronism, a throwback to a time when spies dressed for dinner and crude racial stereotypes were socially acceptable, 007 projected an image of Western intelligence services as a noble-band of decisive and courageous patriots, fighting an enemy in the Soviet Union, that possessed a kind of wanton, undiscriminating belligerence" (Moran, p. 209). Fleming himself interpreted his creation in the same way, once saying that Bond was the intelligence community's "strong right hand" in the fight against communism (ibid.) Dulles actively sought Fleming's advice on intelligence matters. He even funded research into gizmos from the books, including a spring-loaded knife embedded into a shoe, and was thrilled to find that it worked. The personal relationship between Dulles and Fleming shows that real intelligence can and does find inspiration in spy fiction for their public presentation, for technologies, and for their heroic self-image. The American edition of Octopussy was the first to be illustrated. The Man with the Golden Gun is in the second issue jacket with darker grey lettering than the first issue. Casino Royale is in the second issue jacket, clipped but retaining the printed price; the six consecutive titles, Gilbert notes, are "often" or "invariably" clipped in a similar fashion, as here. All volumes except Casino Royale and Goldfinger are from the significant Ian Fleming collection of Martin Schøyen (b.1940), with his bookplate. Schøyen's private collection of manuscripts, which span all cultures and all time periods, is one of the largest and most comprehensive of its kind.

Christopher Moran, "Ian Fleming and CIA Director Allen Dulles: The Very Best of Friends", James Bond in World and Popular Culture, 2012. 14 works, octavo. Original boards or cloth in various colours. With dust jackets. Ownership signature on front pastedowns of The Spy Who Loved Me and For Your Eyes Only. A very good set indeed, toning to spine of From Russia, with Love, abrasions and tape to endpapers of The Man with the Golden Gun, ownership marks sometime removed, small mark at pp. 125-32 of Goldfinger, contents otherwise clean. In very attractive dust jackets, Goldfinger and The Spy Who Loved Me price-clipped, seven others clipped as usual but retaining price (see note), occasional sunning to spines and soiling to rear panels, the odd marks to versos, some jackets slightly rubbed and creased with nicks and chips (loss to two letters at foot of Casino Royale), From Russia, with Love with verso tape repairs at top edges and folds, all still presenting well and generally quite bright.

    First edition of the first novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original black cloth. In near fine condition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example. 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.
