    More Information:

    Ian Fleming Typed Letter Signed. London: 3rd July, 1963. To R. L. Sjöström. Letter is mounted on foam board. One quarto leaf on blue stationery with Fleming's London address. Approximately 10 x 8 inches. Most of letter is toned (evidently it had been framed at one point), with vertical and horizontal creases, and some edgewear. Good.

    In this letter, Fleming thanks the recipient for his list of corrections for his (presumably Bond) books: "I am afraid you will find that I make mistakes in all my books and I can only plead that Shakespeare was equally remiss and that Jane Austen once had cherry trees flowering in December!" Beneath the typed portion, Fleming has signed in black ink.

    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.
