No, Mr Bond..! I want you to… Bid.

06/06/2011

A heads-up for anyone interested in James Bond… Christie’s Fine Books & Manuscripts sale in London next week features a nice ready-made collection of 12 James Bond novels, including 10 first editions. You will note from the estimate (£1.8k – £2.5k) that this lot does not feature among its number the jewel in any Bond collector’s crown – a first edition of Casino Royale which was published in 1953. As the first novel featuring the British secret agent this is where it all began…

…however anyone looking to acquire this particular first edition will be excited to know that Christie’s New York also hold the same category of sale this month and have a reasonably nice example up for grabs with an estimate of between £4.8 – £7.3k
