Ian Flemming Introduces Jamaica

£60.00

Product description

Perfect condition, second impression 1965 - Ian Flemming Introduces Jamaica

Novelist Ian Fleming discusses the island where, at his winter retreat named Goldeneye, he wrote one Bond novel a year from 1952/3-1964. Publisher André Deutsch had contacted Ian Fleming regarding a traveller's guide to Jamaica which was being compiled by the respected local journalist (and a close friend of Fleming) Morris Cargill. In early 1964 the pair discussed the project over lunch at Cargill's island home and Fleming agreed to make a contribution, much to the delight of Deutsch, who began marketing the book under the title Ian Fleming's Jamaica. However, Fleming fell ill upon his returnto England and was unable to devote his time to producing an original essay, instead adapting his 1947 Horizon article as a makeweight introduction, which effectively became his last literary work.

Slight dint on bottom corners - see photos.
