Ian Fleming: A Catalogue of a Collection.

Liverpool: Privately Printed by the author, 1978. [Bondiana] FIRST (and only) EDITION, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR in black ink. Slim octavo. pp.72. Publisher's glossy pictorial covers depicting the Fleming family coat of arms. A fine copy. Copies signed by Campbell are scarce. Bibliographer Jon Gilbert's copy, with his pencilled note and ownership signature to free endpaper. His encyclopaedic guide to the works of Ian Fleming (2012) won the 16th Breslauer Prize for bibliography. A checklist of an Ian Fleming collection 'preliminary to a bibliography'. A useful guide now superseded by Ian Fleming: The Bibliography (Queen Anne Press, 2012). Nevertheless, this is an important publication which was the most comprehensive reference of its kind for years, and certainly influenced future bibliographers James Pickard, Otto Penzler and Jon Gilbert.
