About this deal

For anyone who is a Bondophille, your Bond collection is not complete without The James Bond Archives. Describes a book or dust jacket that does show some signs of wear on either the binding, dust jacket or pages. The main body of correspondence is between Frampton and Isabel Ross, Editorial Manager at Jonathan Cape, concerning Frampton's work to re-type the 1965 critical analysis The James Bond Dossier by Kingsley Amis, and the first post-Fleming Bond continuation novel, Colonel Sun published in 1968, also by Amis under the pseudonym Robert Markham.

Quite simply, this is the best James Bond book available - nothing really comes close to the quality and detail of this gigantic book. This impeccably British character created by author Ian Fleming has starred in 25 EON-produced films, played by six different actors over five decades. It is so loosely based on the "real" Bond character, that it seems out of place in a serious Bond book. Not only are all the "official" movies up to "Skyfall" covered, but two "unofficial" ones are included. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and a 12-page profile of Ian Fleming, including a new printing of his Playboy interview conducted in 1963.The book's cover lookes like red pebble-grained snakeskin or lizard and the inside front and back cover pages are copies of a shooting schedule from "From Russia With Love". Made with unrestricted access to the Bond archives, this XL tome recounts the entire history of James Bond in words and pictures. It starts with an interesting preface by Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli - the custodians of the Bond franchise - welcoming you to the world of Bond. This book in large size/format, contains 600 (SIX-HUNDRED) sites is very heavy (I would have overweight in the plane).

As well as photographs, there are many diagrams, art designs of scenes and costumes, plans for stunts, posters and images of the cameras and crew at work. The full page rare photographs are simply stunning the quality is so high and the behind the scenes information is unbelievably detailed and interesting. The 1967 version of "Casino Royale" to many people is a farce and a disgrace, and although you can applaud the thoroughness of the authors to include it, the truth is that it may have been better to leave it out. It arrived in a rather plain cardboard "suitcase-style" slipcase with a plastic handle, but WOW the book itself is beautiful! The ultimate companion to all things 007, covering the making of every movie in the James Bond franchise, from Dr.I share my passions for films, mystery fiction and comics by publishing, editing and writing books and magazines.

Included here is: an original typed page of Thrilling Cities, a carbon typescript with the three-line Basho poem from You Only Live Twice, typescript sheets from You Only Live Twice, a typesheet from The Man with the Golden Gun, a typesheet from The James Bond Dossier and three sheets from Colonel Sun. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the most successful and longest-running film franchise in cinema history! Lavishly illustrated with more than one thousand images, this comprehensive guide to all things Bond covers every film in the Franchise from Dr No to Spectre, with interviews from the cast and crew.This is a large and informative illustrated volume on the literary and cinematic James Bond" (Gilbert). There is a striking photo of Sean Connery, Ian Fleming, Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman - really the four men who made Bond happen. It maybe considered a coffee table book, but you'll need a well made coffee table to put this on - it weighs quite a bit. Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you.
