THE REAL JAMES BOND

THE REAL JAMES BOND

Posted on: 19/08/2017

JAMES BOND fan? THIS is what you NEED! :)
The Real James Bond and ‘Birds of the West Indies’
When Ian Fleming was asked about the source of the name for his suave British Secret Agent with a Licence to Kill he admitted that he had taken the name of the author of a book that he had read and that was currently on his shelf at his house “Goldeneye”, Jamaica:
James Bond, B.A. (Cambridge) – Research Associate in Vertebrate Zoology of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia.
Author of: “Field Guide of Birds of the West Indies: A Guide to all the species of birds known from the Greater Antilles, Lesser Antilles and Bahama Island”.
It was this 1947 edition that Fleming had on his bookshelf at Goldeneye.
In the 2014 Drama Series “Fleming”, this is the book on Ian Fleming’s desk in the last shot of the final episode. 
Elizabeth's Bookshop AU$350.00 (At Elizabeth's Bookshop Warehouse, 23 Queen Victoria Street, Fremantle.) Fetching between US$350 and US$1000 online. SOLD!
