Casino Royale
by Ian Fleming


Published: Vintage, 2014

A special edition, limited to 500, of the first Bond novel, a joint production between Vintage Classics and Bentley. A magnificent production, covered in double-stitched beluga-coloured leather from the tannery in Italy which provides hides for Bentley’s interiors, embossed with the winged Bentley logo and with a spine representing the metal tread-plate of the cars. It also has a limited-edition marque with Fleming's signature that mirrors the cars' engine plates and a hidden compartment that holds a leather-bound case of Bentley Bond playing cards, reflecting the famous game of high-stakes poker Bond plays with Le Chiffre. All this contained in a clamshell box also covered in double-stitched beluga-coloured leather.

Price: £750.00
