First edition `Live And Let Die` found in bag of charity donations
Staff at an Edinburgh charity shop proved to have a golden eye for spotting a real gem when they found a rare 007 first edition in a bag of donations - reports The Scotsman
The Oxfam Morningside bookshop staff spied the first edition of Ian Fleming's Live and Let Die in a bin bag.
The novel was Fleming's second book and is estimated to be worth Â£600 to Â£800.
It will be auctioned at Bonhams in Oxford on 29 September.
The bookshop has received several valuable donations over the years. Last year a first edition of From Russia with Love raised Â£300 and staff are hoping that the auction of Live and Let Die will be even more successful.
Bookshop manager Andy Crosby said: "007 seems to bring a bit of luck to our shop.
"We don't know who donated the book but I would like to thank them very much for their extremely generous donation."
