The Free Library of Philadelphia's Rare Book Department has a fascinating collection of Bond's permits (including the ones pictured above).
They are part of the library's Mary Wickham Bond archive, and they will be on display when I present my "Real James Bond" talk there.
My talk, part of the library's "Hands-on History" series, had been scheduled for this Saturday, April 11, but will be rescheduled, likely for later this year. (Fingers crossed.)
The Free Library's Rare Book Department is an incredible place, and I can't wait to give my talk there.
