The Ian Fleming Collection of 19th–20th Century Source Material Concerning Western Civilization Together with the Originals of the James Bond–007 Tales (1971)

An excellent reference listing many of the items in Ian Fleming's famous personal library of “firsts,” now owned by the University of Indiana's Lilly Library. Of interest to Bond fans is Part III, which includes notes pointing out differences between the finished Bond novels and Fleming's early typescripts (most of which are also currently owned by the Lilly Library), the text of inscriptions made by Fleming in his personal copies of the James Bond novels, and a few photographs showing Fleming's typescript corrections, inscriptions, and other examples of his handwriting.
