Description

    First Edition, Inscribed by Ian Fleming

    Ian Fleming. From Russia, with Love. London: Jonathan Cape, [1957].

    First edition. Inscribed by Fleming on the front free endpaper, "To S. Frost from Ian Fleming". Octavo. 253 pages.

    Publisher's black cloth with front and spine stamped in red and silver. Scattered foxing to page edges. Dust jacket has very light soiling with a tiny hole near front fold and two small stains on rear fold. The upper and lower edges of jacket were folded over in the past causing two fold lines that run jacket length. These folds have also allowed for differences in toning. Housed in a beautiful custom clamshell box by The Dragonfly Bindery. The box front reproduces an image of a Smith & Wesson .38 and rose from front panel of jacket in intricate, multicolored leathers. A near fine copy of the fifth Bond novel.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
