The Lilly Library owns Ian Fleming's original manuscripts for all of the James Bond novels (except Thunderball, The Man With the Golden Gun, and Octopussy and The Living Daylights). Fleming had each one specially bound in leather. Fleming also had all of his own first editions of the James Bond novels specially bound in leather and numbered on the spines. Several of them feature handwritten notes by Fleming. He took special care to have all the original dustjackets bound in with the novels so as not to lose the unique artwork.

For a closer look at each dustjacket, click on the thumbnails below.
