Smith continued to work for Fleming until his death in He would defend the rights of the James Bond novels until his retirement in his eighties. Smith had died on 15th April possibly from natural causes. His custodianship of the Fleming literacy legacy was long and dedicated and impressive and as a man of integrity and easy company he formed close friendships with many of the writes, publishers, and collectors and other significant people within the world of Bond, all of whom will mourn his death. With his handsome head of hair and his somewhat angry bird looks, he cut a striking figure, but forbidding he wasn't, and nothing was more enjoyable than spending time with Peter reminiscing about the early days" [2].

Convivial literary agent to Ian Fleming who ensured his Bond novels were read around the world

In , drawn to the world of books and writing, he started his career with the literary agent A D Peters. Two years later he moved on to Curtis Brown, where he managed its foreign rights department. Peter always relished the company of those European publishers who had done so much to revitalise British publishing after the war—including Deutsch, George Weidenfeld, Ernest Hecht and Klaus Flugge. The firm started out in Artillery Mansions, a gloomy red-brick block on Victoria Street, but for many years he shared offices in Great Russell Street with fellow agents Elaine Greene and, for a time, John Wolfers; and from there he moved to offices in Stoke Newington. Among the members of staff who joined the firm was the equally young Deborah Rogers, who in due course set up on her own and soon established a reputation as an outstanding literary agent. Janson-Smith acquired Ian Fleming in on the recommendation of Ambler.

At some point in the late s, Peter worked, rather improbably, as an editor for Oxford University Press. Peter seemed ill at ease there and made little mark as a commissioning editor.

Jobs in Books

This is the appreciation I wrote the following week, based on an interview I conducted with him in the run-up to his 90th birthday celebrations. In , Peter Janson-Smith was pondering how he could leave the employment of literary agents Curtis Brown and set up on his own. He knew he had the capability, but the cash flow challenges seemed daunting. He would have to recruit authors, secure publishing deals for them, wait for their books to be written and published, then a further six months for the first royalty cheques to come in. Shortly afterwards, Ambler was at a dinner party and heard a fellow guest complaining about his lack of overseas book sales. The writer was sure that his hero had universal appeal, even though he was a very English character, yet only one foreign-language deal had been signed. Fleming had concluded his own deal in the UK with Jonathan Cape and had a US agent, but he was able to place his translation rights with Janson-Smith, who acted with alacrity. The large garden of the Queen Anne rectory made for a wonderful playground, but his brother and sister were much older, and his mother disapproved of him mixing with the children of the village. His closest friend was Ken, the gardener, who took him on regular bicycle rides into the village to collect milk in a can, and who gave him a plank to swat wasps feasting on an old vine flourishing in the greenhouse. An unmarried mother, she had been turned out by her parents.

His office boasted an enormous fridge; I worked for the press at the time, and remember how Peter and I would often meet Kingsley Amis to discuss his forthcoming New Oxford Book of Light Verse.

On the dot of Peter married three times, had four children Patrick, Diana, Alice and Deirdre , seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Deirdre mounted international exhibitions for the Wellcome Trust, and Patrick— an ebullient, successful and much-liked publishing editor—launched the successful Black Swan imprint.
