The biggest collection of James Bond film and book memorabilia ever compiled is tipped to sell for a staggering £3m.<br />
<br />
The trove of more than 600 rare films scripts, signed first edition novels and letters by Ian Fleming has been 'expertly put together' for decades. <br />
<br />
It includes an American edition omnibus of the first three 007 books signed and sent by Fleming to a real-life 'James Bond' worth £60,000. <br />
<br />
The books were delivered with a letter to Mr Bond as "compensation for the ragging" he suffered due to his name. <br />

A first edition, first impression copy of Casino Royale - Fleming's first Bond novel - signed by the author in 1953 and dedicated to the "power behind the publisher's throne" is tipped to sell for £120,000.
