First edition of the iconic E-type launch brochure.

Estimate price: (e£100-150)

First edition of the iconic E-type launch brochure. 12 x 9. This edition only has 8 pages and at the foot of the last page on the right is the line “Printed in England by Adams Bros. & Shardlow Ltd. Leicester”. It has no road tests included at the back. Beware copies that have 8 pages but lack the line about the printers. That will have started life as a second edition containing the road tests, which have been cut out (along with the details of the printers) to give the impression that it is a more valuable first edition. If your E-type is a very early car, this is for you! Some sl rubbing on the cover (as usual). VG. (PS – Apologies for the reflections!)

“Visions of Speed – The Art of Roy Nockolds”

Estimate price: (e£150-175)

Roy Nockolds’ paintings of Jaguar’s significant competition successes in the 1950s were a key factor in the creation of “The Jaguar Legend”. They played a central role in Jaguar’s advertising (Lots 910 and 916 above) as well as a set of table mats (Lot 171) and Jaguar Christmas cards (within Lot 909). This book is a celebration of Nockold’s motoring art across the board. A privately-printed large format book (21 x 12), it contains 13 images taken from the original glass plates Nockolds used to record his work. Each plate has a hand-coloured title page and tissue inserts. Printed on heavy, deckle-edged art paper and pillar-bound in a grey and black cloth binding with a chequered flag pattern, this is number 99 of a projected 850 copies. However, considerably fewer were actually produced. Numbers quoted vary between 100 and 250. I suspect more than 100 but rather less than 250. The Jaguar plate is no 16 – “Road Race” – and shows Hawthorn’s D-type being chased by Fangio through the Esses in that fateful 1955 Le Mans race. Sl rippling of end pages o/w Fine, nr Mint and it its original mailing box. Rare.
