Rare original manuscripts for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang go under the hammer next
The novel of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang the flying car with a bubbly
personality was originally penned by James Bond author Ian
Fleming in 1961 as he recovered after a heart attack and is based
on stories he used to tell his son.
Fleming manuscripts are extremely rare. The major Fleming
collection held by the Lilly Library at Indiana University does not
even include an autograph manuscript or typescript of Chitty,
auction house Sotheby\'s said.
The manuscripts of the three original adventures as well as
sketches of the car are expected to fetch at least 12,000 pounds
when they go under the hammer in London on December 12.
