Shaken, not stirred ... The 16th ILAB Breslauer Prize for Bibliography goes to Jon Gilbert for his groundbreaking work about the author of the James Bond novels: Ian Fleming. The Bibliography. Gilbert's opus magnum covers every aspect of Ian Fleming’s writings, and it provides his readers with all that possibly is to know about Ian Fleming and his works. Fleming's books comprise much more than the thrilling stories of the famous agent 007, whose love of sexy girls, dangerous duties in Her Majesty's service and a vodka martini is legendary.
Jon Gilbert, a renowned bookdealer at rare book experts Adrian Harrington Limited in London, received the Prize worth 10.000 $, from ILAB Prize Secretary Arnoud Gerits, ILAB President Tom Congalton, and jury member Jean-Marc Chatelain (Bibliothèque Nationale de France) who honoured the work and its author with a brilliant speech.
