Thrilling Cities

By Fleming, Ian




Thrilling Cities is the title of a collection of non-fiction travel articles by James Bond creator Ian Fleming. The book was published by Glidrose Productions first in Great Britain in 1963, followed by an American edition in 1964. The book is a collection of articles Fleming wrote for the London Sunday Times, based on two trips he took between 1959 and 1960 at the behest of Times travel editor Leonard Russell. The book version includes material edited out of the original articles.

Thrilling Cities - Uncorrected Proof Copy in original proof wrapper

Fleming, Ian

London: Cape, 1963. An uncorrected proof copy published by Cape in 1963. Light edgewear and some creasing to the corners of the first twenty pages, spine a little sunned, but a near fine copy. The Paul Davis-designed dust wrapper is uncut, with square corners (the published book has square corners) and the publication date is stamped at the foot of the front flap. The proof book contains several differences to the hardback, mostly of a typographical nature; some ommissions appear on the copyright page, the final leaf of the text differs and there are no picture credits printed at the rear. A scarce Fleming proof - only 175 copies printed. Serialised in The Sunday Times (1959-60) and all collected here for the time in book form. Excessively rare.

Thrilling Cities (First Edition, First State)

Fleming, Ian

London: Jonathan Cape, 1963. First Edition, First Printing, First State. Hardcover. About Fine/Near Fine. Grey patterened paper over boards with quarter white cloth spine, title stamped in gilt onto spine, top edge stained black, black endpapers, 8vo (8-3/4 inches tall), pp. 223, illustrated with 82 B&W photographs. Volume toned at edges, front pastedown with illustrated "Redpath Museum - McGill University" decorative bookplate, name in pencil verso ffep. Price-clipped DJ with faint toning to edges, tiny rubs to spine ends, three pinhead-sized dots of pink missing from foot of spine panel and an unobtrusive scratch to front panel. A very unusual copy - preceeding the first state of the first Cape edition - with all errors as called for, but lacking the erratum slip or any evidence of it ever having been there. This is because some copies were shipped overseas during the first two days of the production run, prior to the selection of an incorrect photo being noticed. Hence the need for an erratum slip. Gilbert notes there are just two other known copies of the first state that lack the errata slip. This copy also in the first state DJ, with the lamination uncorrected. Ref. Gilbert, A16a(1.1).

Thrilling Cities.

Fleming, Ian

London: Jonathan Cape, 1963. First edition of Fleming's volume of travel journalism. Octavo, original half cloth, illustrated. Small name to the title page, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with some rubbing to the crown of the spine. Jacket design by Paul Davis. Ian Fleming's world travels, interests, as well as his journalism and wartime experiences, lent authority to everything he wrote. In 1959, the Sunday Times commissioned Fleming to write a series of dispatches from the world's most beguiling locales. The result was Thrilling Cities, a masterpiece of well-observed travelogue that stands ably alongside the author's Bond canon. Here are Fleming's highly personal observations of fourteen cities across Europe, Asia, and North America-from Vienna to Hong Kong to Chicago. At each stop, Fleming casts the guidebook aside, taking readers on an insider's tour of everything from a Tokyo geisha house led by the world's most beautiful women to a packed Las Vegas casino where fortunes ride on a roll of the dice, and beyond.

New York, 1964. First Edition. (New York: New American Library 1964). First US Edition. Publisher's mustard yellow cloth, red titles on the spine, black device to front board and red top edge (faded). A near fine copy (light foxing in places to a few early pages) in a D/W priced $4.95 to the inside flap (as called for). Many copies that appear on the market these days have the D/W price-clipped and we are pleased that this copy has escaped that fate. The D/W would also have been near fine except for a former owner having totally un-necessarily reinforced the folds on the verso, and at the head of the spine, with scotch tape. Notwithstanding this quite a nice copy of a book famous for the rather dull short story "007 in New York" and the recipe for Scrambled Eggs "James Bond" to be cooked, of course, in a copper-bottomed saucepan.
