The new James Bond book, The Devil May Care, is out and available cheaply, or – if you’d prefer to see what happens when Bond fanatics go a little overboard, take a peek at the Bentley special edition version of the book. Bond drove a handful of Bentley’s over the years and is behind the wheel of one again in The Devil May Care. Only 300 copies of the book have been made (100 for the U.S.). The publishers met with the design team at Bentley and spared no expense in the details of the special edition. The look is a mix of the original 1950’s Bond novels with the 1950’s Bentley owner’s manuals. The leather binding and stitching is the same used in Bentleys and there is even a steel engine plate inside with the number of the book. And it comes with a little die-cast replica of the original Bond Bentley from Casino Royale. Afraid someone might use this book as a coaster on your coffee table? Likely not when it is in it’s plexi-glass case…included. $1500. BUY

And while we’re talking Baccarat……though this may appear like a repeat post based on the photo, as used in our smokescreen post, this post actually is about Bonham & Butterfield’s Auction tomorrow at 3:30 pm of lot 310, this 1965 Aston Martin DB5. Yes, the same make, model, year and color as James Bond’s. The auction will include plenty of other Bond memorabilia including original posters for around $150-500. In 1965 the DB5 sold for around $8,000, unheard of for a new car at the time. Converted from automatic to stick shift, new body job, British right hand drive, new sound proofing and all the bells and whistles to make it a fun ride. Attach that smokescreen button and all you need is the license to kill. Estimated at $300,000. BID

Something to learn before one dies: Baccarat came from Italy to France in the 1400’s and is now played at Casinos worldwide, usually in the higher stakes rooms. The name, Baccarat stands for a hand totaling 10, which counts for zero points. The purpose of the game is to get as close to 9 without going over. A close relative to Blackjack, there are rules of dealing. An easy learn, and to top it off, the numberless cards look better than any other game. Cards $10 BUY . Palette $80 BUY
