    Happy Birthday! They are two books I would not mind reading, two of my favorite Bond films.

    The OHMSS book looks stunning.

    Great cover love that photo of George

    Actually neither of mine came with film, had to get it. That was right before that kind of film was phased out. :)) But that pic does show nearly everything I got from it. Some of the other stuff like those headsets you could get in stores. Unfortunately the sticker on my camera was upside down so I had to peel it off and put it the right way. Q wasn't happy.

    Yes, I have them all except Casino Royale. Everything from FRWL onwards is relatively easy to get. The first four are a little more expensive. I only have a few first editions. Most later printings, but they look great on the shelf!

    The OHMSS book is an essential piece of Bondage. Helfstein compiled it in a compelling fashion and the detail and inside stories are excellent. He did one of my other favourites TLD as well. Both great fun, but the OHMSS tale is especially good.

    Sounds great. I only have paperbacks at the moment. Looking to make a start on hardbacks.

    I saw on eBay a 1st edition Moonraker is bid up to £1700 so far.

    I'm also collecting the folio society hardcovers in the slip cases with wonderful artwork by Fay dalton. I bought a bunch of them at once to save on shipping costs. They are the final collections of the Fleming novels I'll get. Wonderful editions.

    I've grown a small collection of the continuation novels, but as far as Fleming, I only have the Blofeld trilogy. Alas, I should grow my Fleming collection.

    I only have a Norwegian hardback edition of LALD. It's not a first printing or anything, but part of a early 70's (I think) hardback series where all the covers (except from the title on the spine) look the same.

    Just picked up a pair of the walkie-talkies seen used by Bond, Goodnight and JW. Been after them for a quite a while. Will post pics when they arrive in 2-3 weeks.

    Here's all the hardbacks I have (other than recent continuations).

    These are Jonathan Cape first editions:

    247122_800.jpg

    These are Book Club/Reprint Society:

    246662_800.jpg

    This was published in 1994 and I have no idea what is going on with that cover. Nice homage to, er, Licence to Kill:

    246791_800.jpg

    I don't think I paid more than £1 for anything here. Those were the days!

    Now for some weirdness. When I was taking these photos, I found something folded up in the dustjacket of Thunderball:

    247518_800.jpg

    The words to Green Grow The Rushes, typewritten in green, and a false moustache. WHAT.

    @Agent_99 nice collection of hardbacks. Those Book Club editions are great too.

    I would rather cut off my pinkie yakuza style than to sell that one :p

    Also a sgd leaflet (Andress , Gayson , LeWars , van der Syl......only one missing is Zena , bummer)

    I have that LALD book too. My mum got it for me in the late '90s. I think the only other hardcover novel I have is Licence Renewed (which seems to be the easiest one to find).

    Oh, and hold onto that moustache- it may be a screen-used prop from OP!

    They had some of my favourite cover designs - I love that Thunderball.

    Ha! :D

    My mum also found a lot of the books pictured for me - collecting runs in the family.

    The message was obviously meant to be decoded (note the capital 'P' in "APostles") and surely provides instructions for a covert operation. The false mustache, of course, was for the recipient to wear during said operation. Whoever was meant to receive this clearly never did, which causes me great worry as to the fate of the free world. But at least their botch-up has made for an amusing story.

    Interesting! Do you know if any of those books came with a dust jacket?

    I am pretty sure none of them did.

    Latest additions to the collection- a couple of things used by everyone's favourite Bond girl!

    The CD is from a deleted scene: Jinx uses her phone to break into Dr. Alvarez' safe and steal the disc.
