A very rare signed photo of James Bond creator Ian Fleming measuring approximately 3Â½â x 4Â½â.
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.
