A Complete set of Ian Fleming's UK First Editions and Related Material.

Lot 206: A Complete set of Ian Fleming's UK First Editions and Related Material.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A Complete set of Ian Fleming's UK First Editions and Related Material. consisting of 43 books in total and featuring the 14 Bond books (all with original dust wrappers), as well as other writings by Fleming and a number of publications concerning him. OTHER NOTES Ian Fleming had tried his hand at many things, such as soldiering, stock broking and journalism, but it wasn't until just over a decade before his death that he created the character for whom he became famous. The Bond novels are informed by Fleming's time in the Naval Intelligence Division during World War Two, but they also draw on his penchant for women and a luxurious lifestyle. Bond's assured (some would say remote) demeanour allows him to maintain his composure in the face of the physical threats presented by his enemies, as well as the charms exhibited by the beautiful women whom he encounters. It was this combination of adventurousness and self-discipline which captured the public imagination. This comprehensive collection, consisting of 43 books in total, not only features the 14 Bond books, but also includes Fleming's other writings, such as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and books for which Fleming wrote introductions. Related materials include the 1960 publication, Birds of the West Indies, by James Bond, the person after whom Fleming's famous character was named, as well as a copy of an address delivered at Fleming's funeral, after his premature death at the age of 56. -Casino Royale.

Morland. George. African Hospitality; The Slave Trade.

Lot 212: Morland. George. African Hospitality; The Slave Trade.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Morland. George. African Hospitality; The Slave Trade. two mezzotint engravings by J. R. Smith. 1791. trimmed. mounted. 46 x 62.5cm and 40.5 x 64cm. (2). OTHER NOTES Note: This pair of prints, which was published at the height of the anti-slavery movement, juxtaposes an image of Africans helping a shipwrecked European family (African Hospitality) with a depiction of an African man being forcibly separated from his wife and child by European slave traders (The Slave Trade). These prints are a departure from Morland's typical depictions of English country scenes and were most probably inspired by a poem written by his friend, William Collins.
