Jaguar XK120 – Anatomie eines Kultobjekts” (Anatomy of an Icon) by Urs Schmid.

Sold Price: £55

his is the standard edition. Detailed and authoritative text accompanied by superb photography – usually of Urs’ own XK 120s. The detail is quite outstanding and, although in German, one of the joys of technical German is that it is largely understandable by English-speaking readers. What else could “Auspuff” mean but “exhaust”!. Mint.

“Sixties Motor Racing”. Photography by Michael Cooper and text by motoring historian, Paul Parker.

Estimate Price: (e£900-1000)

Foreword by Nick Mason. A superb production by luxury publishers Palawan. This book isn’t just about cars – it is also about people. Cooper wasn’t merely an observer of the F1 scene of the day but became, as his reputation grew, part of its very fabric and a friend to the most celebrated drivers of the day. This book brings together a decade-long body of his work – 390 photographs, many never before seen. Paul Parker’s year-by-year narrative puts Cooper’s pictures into the wider context of that very special decade. Jaguar’s glory years of the 1950s had dimmed, but the cars and especially Jaguar drivers are dotted through the book. There were five leather-bound editions each in a different colour – Red, Blue, Green, Yellow and Black. Each edition consists of ten (10) signed copies, specially numbered 1960-1969. This is black edition no 1960. The book is handbound in Morocco leather and is presented in a cloth solander box. As is always the case with Palawan, production standards are very high indeed – paper, binding, printing and colour are all of the very best. The solander box is 14.5 inches square and with the book weighs over 14 lbs. Mint book in a Mint solander box; both in the original mailing box. Very rare.

‘Jaguar – a Tradition of Sports Cars’ by Bernard Viart and Michel Cognet. Haynes. 1985. 443 pp. 8.5 x 10.

Estimate Price: (e£20-25)

The French equivalent of the milestone books written by such English authors as Paul Skilleter, Philip Porter and Andrew Whyte. First published in French in 1984 but this edition in English. A deeply researched book of the company that also deals with the cars. Its special joy is the number of photos that appear for the first time. This is a direct result of the two authors having direct access to much French material. Michel Cognet worked for the company’s main agent in Paris for many years including the 1950s when he was the unofficial liaison officer and local “fixer” with the Company’s works teams at Le Mans, Rheims etc. He therefore had a unique insight into the era – and a huge fund of stories to tell, not all of which the lawyers would allow into the book!
