N/490

A copy of the very rare leather-bound version of “XK in Australia” with an XK120 radiator badge set into the cover.

Estimate Price: (e£850-950)

This superb book stands in the front rank of the Jaguar library as a testament to years of diligent research and scholarship. Co-authored by John Elmgreen and Terry McGrath, two luminaries of the Australian Jaguar scene, this book was published in New South Wales in 1985. It is a large book – 10 inches by 13.5 inches in size and 373 pages in length. Publication was limited to 1000 numbered copies. There were three basic editions of the book – first, the standard buckram-bound book, with or without a dust wrapper (see Lot A/62). Secondly, a leather-bound edition with no badge. Finally, this superb edition with a full leather binding and a facsimile XK120 bonnet badge set into the cover. All editions were numbered within the same 1-1000 run but it is believed that only 30-40 copies were produced with the badge. This copy is No 104. It is in excellent condition and appears to be unread internally. The spine and part of the front cover have been sunned and only this prevents a “Fine near Mint” grading – and a higher estimate!

Estimate Price: (e£250-300) the pair

Original plastic ring-binders. Pub Nos J29/1 and J29/2. Both first published in December 1960. Both volumes have seen some wear to front pages and occasional finger prints inside. I suspect these are library copies rather than from a workshop. Volume 1 deals mainly with the principal mechanical and electrical components and Volume 2 focuses on bodywork. XK150S items are listed separately. Owners of these wonderful cars will know that these Catalogues are not seen very often and are rarely offered as a pair. VG nr Fine.

N/494

XK120 fhc. Dinky no 157.

Estimate Price: (e£20-30)

Estimate Price: (e£20-30)

Two-tone with maroon over turquoise. Unboxed. As with the Lot above, I can’t make out whether this is a repaint or an unmolested original and the seller does not know either. I have therefore priced it as the former – so, again, there may be a good bargain here for someone! Fine.

Airbrush illustrations still show features from the prototype car that did not make it into production such as the straight-sided windscreen and the filler cap inside the boot. This copy shows only light signs of wear and some sl edginess as may be expected from a brochure that is nearly 70 years old. Fine.

N/500

Original XK140 radiator badge. Metal and enamel.

Sold Price: £40.00

Almost invisible scratch across front. I suspect that this was owned by a badge collector at some stage as the two mounting posts at the back have been removed. The estimate reflects this.
