You Only Live Twice

By Fleming, Ian




Bond, a shattered man after the death of his wife at the hands of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, has gone to pieces as an agent, endangering himself and his fellow operatives. M, unwilling to accept the loss of one of his best men, sends 007 to Japan for one last, near-impossible mission. But Japan proves to be Bond's downfall, leading him to a mysterious residence known as the 'Castle of Death' where he encounters an old enemy revitalized. All the omens suggest that this is the end for the British agent and, for once, even Bond himself seems unable to disagree...

You Only Live Twice.

FLEMING, Ian.

London: Jonathan Cape,, 1964. Presentation copy to the hard-drinking Australian journalist, Richard Hughes, the model for "Dikko" Henderson in the book, one of two journalist friends to whom the book is dedicated Octavo. Original black boards, titles to spine in silver, Japanese characters to front board in gilt, wood grain endpapers. With the Richard Chopping designed dust jacket. Housed in a custom black quarter morocco solander box. A few pencilled underlines in the first two chapters, free endpapers slightly browned, a couple of very faint spots to rear panel of jacket; an very good, bright copy. First edition, first impression, one of two dedication copies, inscribed by Fleming to one of the two dedicatees, Richard Hughes, on the front free endpaper: "To Dikko-san from Fleming-san. With all affection." In 1959, Ian Fleming was given a licence to travel. Fleming had written seven James Bond novels when he was approached by one of his colleagues at The Sunday Times with a plum journalistic assignment: to take a five-week, all-expenses-paid trip to visit the world's most exciting cities. Fleming's trip took in Hong Kong, Macau and Tokyo, then Honolulu, and home via the major U.S. cities. Along the way, he gathered material for his novels and his journalism: his Thrilling Cities tour became a popular newspaper series and a bestselling guidebook, while also furnishing much of the backdrop and research for the five Bond novels and seven short stories that would follow. In Tokyo, Fleming's local guide was Richard "Dikko" Hughes, The Sunday Times's Far East correspondent, an ebullient, hard-drinking Australian ex-boxer and part-time spy for MI6. Hughes recruited a Japanese journalist, Toreo "Tiger" Saito, to join them. Fleming was clear about what he wanted to do. "With only three days in Japan, I decided to be totally ruthless," he wrote. "No politicians, museums, temples, Imperial palaces or tea ceremonies… I wanted to explore Ginza, have the most luxurious Japanese bath, spend an evening with geishas, take a day trip into the country, eat large quantities of raw fish, for which I have a weakness, and ascertain whether saké was truly alcoholic or not." The local guides were repaid when Fleming immortalised them both, little disguised, in You Only Live Twice. Hughes became the model for Richard Lovelace "Dikko" Henderson, the Australian spy stationed in Japan; Saito, a "chunky, reserved man who looked like a fighter", would become the fictional Tiger Tanaka, head of the Japanese secret service. The book is jointly dedicated: "To Richard Hughes and Torao Saito But for whom etc. …" Hughes features prominently in chapter 4, "Dikko on the Ginza": "The huge right fist crashed into the left palm with the noise of a ·45 pistol shot. The great square face of the Australian turned almost purple and the veins stood out on the grizzled temples…" Later, Hughes's character is described as looking "like a middle-aged prize fighter who had retired and taken to the bottle". On page 53, Fleming describes how, "that evening they had gone for more serious drinking to Henderson's favourite bar, Melody's, off the Ginza, where everybody called Henderson 'Dikko' or 'Dikko-san'." Hughes was also the model for Bill Craw in John le Carre's The Honourable Schoolboy. Gilbert A12a (1.1).

FLEMING, Ian.

1964. London: Jonathan Cape, 1964. 8vo. Original cloth; Japanese figures lettered to upper cover in gold; lettered in silver to spine; pp. 256; a fine copy in a near fine dust-jacket, with just the slightest darkening to spine and rubbing to foot. First edition, first issue. The last of the Bond novels to be published in Fleming's lifetime, and the concluding chapter in the subsequently named 'Blofeld Trilogy'. On 17 July 1963, Michael Howard of Jonathan Cape had written to Chopping about the artwork, saying: "I have had a talk with Ian about the ideas for the ingredients of this design. He is very much in favour of the toad ... but with a suitable array of oriental embellishrangment, i.e. toad plus Japanese flower arrangements, which he thinks should be sitting in a suitable piece of Japanese pottery, perhaps ornamented with a dragon motif. If you could manage a pink dragonfly sitting on the flowers, and perhaps just one epicanthic eye peering through them he thinks that will be just splendid!"(Daily Mail) Chopping's fee subsequently rose to 300 guineas for the jacket design. An exceptionally clean copy.
