Signed by Sean Connery in blue ink along the upper right edge of the title page. The Scottish actor starred as James Bond in seven films between 1962 and 1983. On news of his passing in October 2020, James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli released a statement saying Connery had "revolutionised the world with his gritty and witty portrayal of the sexy and charismatic secret agent. He is undoubtedly largely responsible for the success of the film series and we shall be forever grateful to him". The autograph was obtained in person by a [then] resident of St. Andrews, with a signed note of provenance detailing the occasion included.
