No gamble for Ian Fleming in Bloomsbury auction.

There were a few items of mystery-related interest from Bloomsbury's September 3rd and September 10th auctions:
  • Leslie Charteris, The Saint and Mr. Teal, 1st US ed., 1933; The Saint vs. Scotland Yard, first US ed., 1932; unspecified Saint novel, £40 (approx. US$65)
  • Agatha Christie, Death on the Nile, 1st ed., 1937, plus two unspecified Christie novels, £180 (approx. US$293)
  • Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet, 3rd English ed., illust. James Grieg, 1895, £400 (approx. US$651)
  • Ian Fleming, Casino Royale, 1st ed., 1953, £1700 (approx. US$2767)
