Robert Peter Fleming OBE was a British adventurer and travel writer, brother of novelist Ian Fleming, and unofficial editor of his James Bond books. He has often been cited as a model for the debonair secret service agent created by his brother. This is his acclaimed first book, covering his expedition through the Brazilian jungle in search of the lost Colonel Percy Fawcett. The present copy is from the comprehensive archive assembled by Jon Gilbert (pencil signature within). His encyclopaedic guide to the works of Ian Fleming (2012, published by Peter Fleming's daughter Kate Grimond) won the 16th Breslauer Prize for bibliography. Item #67761
