The Herald - - NEWS -

A SIGNED first edi­tion of Ian Flem­ing’s 007 novel On Her Majesty’s Se­cret Ser­vice could fetch £12,000 at auc­tion in Ed­in­burgh this month.

The hard­back book is one of 250 num­bered copies signed in blue ink by Flem­ing in 1963.

Most re­cently, the book has been part of a pri­vate UK col­lec­tion, but is ex­pected to at­tract bids from Bond en­thu­si­asts world­wide when it is up for sale on Jan­uary 31.

Cathy Mars­den, of auc­tion house Lyon & Turn­bull, said: “James Bond is en­dur­ingly pop­u­lar among col­lec­tors.”
