    The Rare Uncorrected Proof of
    On Her Majesty's Secret Service

    Ian Fleming [ James Bond ]. On Her Majesty's Secret Service. London: Jonathan Cape, [1963]. Uncorrected Proof, one of 500 printed, but few have survived in collectible condition. Octavo. 288 pages. Publisher's printed wrappers. Spine and edges of wrappers toned and rubbed, some wear and creasing to spine, minor soiling to wrappers, rear wrapper creased at top, the first few leaves with a neat horizontal indentation. Still, a near fine copy of this rare and fragile item. Housed in cloth clamshell case.
    This proof had more errors than any other proof, and it also had many textual variations from the final printed text. From the James Bond collection of Gary Firuta.
    Gilbert A.11.a.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
