    Ian Fleming Autograph Letter Signed "Ian". Two pages, 5 x 8 inches, on 16 Victoria Square letterhead, London, no date, to "My dear John." In this intriguing letter Fleming pens a quick note to a book reviewer known to us only as "John" thanking him for a recent favorable review. He writes in full: "My dear John, / What an / enchanting review - of / any book. But since / it is of mine I can / only say thank you / very much./ Only one thing. / Your review is so / charming that you make / me feel I shall now / really have to try - / and that might be / fatal. / Anyway - warm gratitude for your sapient & most kindly / comments. / Ian." This charming letter has only the usual fold creases, else it is fine.
