Goldfinger.

London: Jonathan Cape, 1974. [Espionage novel] Eighth printing. Vintage hardcover reprint, bibliographer's copy, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED by Desmond Llewelyn. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.318. Publisher's dark grey cloth in illustrated dust-jacket. With presentation note to flyleaf; To John / with best wishes / Desmond Llewelyn (underlined) / Q / Major Boothroyd (underlined). A crisp, clean, fine copy in an elegant cloth clamshell box. From the comprehensive James Bond collection of Ian Fleming bibliographer Jon Gilbert, with accompanying provenance. Actor Desmond Llewelyn (1914-1999) was one of British cinema's most recognisable characters and an important and long-standing element in the James Bond film franchise, appearing in seventeen Bond movies between 1963 and 1999. As MI6 quartermaster, 'Q' provides Bond's equipment and personal armory, often frustrated by 007's casual attitude to the life-saving gadgets issued. His finest hour is arguably the scene in Goldfinger, where he supplies Bond with the iconic silver birch Aston Martin DB5 featuring 'certain modifications'. Item #65401
