    I am going to bet that Through the Looking Glass beats its estimate by quite a bit. I don't think the Ian Fleming stuff will meet its estimate because I think that the target market for the James Bond stuff is shrinking.

    I don't know, MC. If I had the money...I'd be more than happy to pay that for the Fleming books. But, then...I'm a HUGE fan.
    I'd esp love to have that copy of "On her majesty's secret service". Very endearing inscription.
