James Bond first editions to be auctioned

14th December 2010

A collection of rare first edition James Bond novels is to go under the hammer in Gloucestershire later this week.

Auction house Dominic Winter will sell a copy of Ian Fleming's Casino Royale, the first appearance of the spy, on December 16th and estimates that the title will fetch up to GBP 12,000.

Other highlights of the auction include Live and Let Die, which is tipped to sell for GBP 5,000, Moonraker with an estimate of GBP 1,500, and The Spy Who Loved Me, which has a guide price of GBP 400.

Dominic Winter, the founder of the auction house, said the continued success of the Bond films means that first editions of Fleming's novels are always popular with book collectors.

'The rare book market has many changing tastes and fashions, although the strikingly colourful James Bond first editions have always been one of the surest certainties over the last 30 years,' he commented.

Other works that will be auctioned at the sale include William Golding's The Ladder and the Tree, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl and Seamus Heaney's District and Circle.
