The Book Collector, Summer 1961.

The Book Collector, Summer 1961.

London: The Shenval Press, [1961]. [Literary Journal] A bibliographic magazine published under the stewardship of Ian Fleming and whose name appears on the title page. Contributors include John Harward and Percy Muir. Publisher's printed softcovers Spine slightly toned. Near fine. In late 1951, The Dropmore Press, owned by Fleming's employer Lord Kemsley and in which Fleming had an interest was revamped as The Queen Anne Press. Ian Fleming was given editorial control with Percy Muir and and John Hayward as directors. Similarly, Kemsley's Book Handbook was rebranded The Book Collector with the same three men serving as the editorial board [and listed on the title page of the present number, joined by John Carter CBE]. Kemsley soon tired of the project, and sold the journal to Fleming cheaply, resulting in Ian becoming a publisher. Item #66302

From the comprehensive Ian Fleming Bibliographical Archive assembled by Jon Gilbert, with his pencilled ownership. His encyclopaedic guide to the works of Ian Fleming (2012) won the 16th Breslauer Prize for bibliography.
