Signed Ian Fleming photo up for auction

Collecting - 27-02-13
A rare signed photo of Ian Fleming is currently up for auction at PFC Auctions. The sepia, somewhat tattered photo of James Bond's creator is currently going for 1,037 with 14 hours to go in an online auction.

Auctioneer Adrian Roose commented "The photo only measures 3" x 4" but to a James Bond fan it's priceless. We've had global interest so we're confident of a good result."

The lot description reads:
A very rare signed photo of James Bond creator Ian Fleming measuring approximately 3 x 4.

The photo has various creases and paper tears, however the signature is largely unaffected.

The item is accompanied by provenance from the vendor explaining how it was obtained by a family member who was employed as a house keeper at The Rookery, Aspley Guise, Bedfordshire.

The Rookery was an office involved with the counter propaganda team, where Ian Fleming was a regular visitor.

An exceptionally rare item. There are believed to be as few as five Ian Fleming signed photographs known to exist.
