From Russia with Love (1963) - A Framed Section of Map from the Set
This 2.5x2.5 inch Section of Map was used in the second James Bond Film by Director Terence Young. The linen backed map section depicts vicinities in Moscow including illustrations of historical buildings, a football club & a communal Park. Maps of this kind would have been used throughout the film, particularly when Rosa Klebb (Lotte Lenya) meets with Tatiana Romanova (Daniela Bianchi) as part of a plot to steal a decoding machine for SPECTRE. Maps were also produced for scenes including the Soviet Consulate & government offices. A few of the maps were either destroyed by Contractors or rescued by Set Decorators where they were later offered in Memorabilia Auctions. This section of map is limited edition number 15 out of 100 sections in existence & accompanies provenance from a reputable Bond Archivist. Similarly original props from the earlier Bond Films are very rare indeed. It comes beautifully displayed inside a laser cut mount with the ‘007’ Logo, four corresponding stills & a descriptive plaque. Framed & glazed, measuring 21x16 inches & including hanging fixtures.
