FLEMING’S NOTEBOOK FOR YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE 33. FLEMING, Ian MANUSCRIPT NOTEBOOK Containing notes taken during a trip to the Far East, including source ma - terial for ‘You Only Live Twice’. [1959]. Small perfect bound pocket notebook with cloth-backed card covers. Square-ruled paper, 54 leaves of manuscript notes by Fleming written in blue biro written mostly on rectos, with oc - casional striking through in pencil or red biro. An extraordinary insight into Fleming’s creative process and the painstaking way in which he recorded everyday details of the exotic surroundings he later described in his books. Signif - icant Fleming manuscript material is profoundly uncommon in commerce, the majority of material now being held by Lilly Library’s Fleming collection. This remains one of the very last pieces in private hands. £95,000
