A first edition, first printing published by Cape in 1956. A very good book without inscriptions, with spotting to the page edges. SIGNED ‘Best Wishes/Sean Connery’ on a specially tipped-in blank endpaper. In a very good dust wrapper with wear to the corners and a little light chipping and some internal neat archival tape repairs. Some very light spoiling to the rear panel.

The book was signed at Sunningdale Golf Club and was organised by one of its members, Dr. Hamish McMichen, a noted London primary physician. Connery has been a member of Sunningdale Golf Club since before 1967 and fellow members include Gary Lineker and Hugh Grant.

This is the first time we have encountered books signed by Connery with such an iron-clad provenance.

Sir Sean Connery was the first actor to portray the character James Bond in film and is widely regarded as the definitive Bond. He starred in 6 Bond films made by Eon Productions, of which Thunderball was the seventh.
