Owner’s Handbook for the XJ220.

Sold Price: £367.50

8 x 6. 116 pp. Prices for the 5-book handbook sets that came with each car are rising gradually. The main reason being that as the cars change hands, the books do not necessarily follow, so the new owners want the books for their cars. The Owner’s Handbook has always had a premium over the other books in the set and this one is an excellent example. Hardly read and only a sl bump on the lower rh corner excludes a “Mint” grading. Fine. Rare.

This is Lucas representative, Norman Bushell’s, personal copy of the leather-bound commemorative photographic album produced by Jaguar Cars after the world record run at the Montlhéry circuit in August 1952.

Estimate Price: (e£7,000-7,500)

That event set four world records and saw the XK 120 fhc, LWK 707, average 100.31 mph for seven days. Truly a performance worth commemorating!

The album itself contains 149 black and white prints on 17 pages of photographic paper. They cover many aspects of the run including the celebrations at the end. One full page shows that iconic photo of the car running high on the Montlhéry banking as dawn breaks over the circuit. This was taken by one of the staff photographers from “Vachon Photographe” the Parisian agency appointed as official photographers to the event. The photo was Roy Nockolds’ inspiration for his striking Jaguar showroom poster of the event.

In addition to the album itself, this lot also contains the extremely rare celebration Dinner Menu at which the albums were presented, plus two newspaper clippings related to the record run, an official Jaguar Montlhéry Christmas card signed by Morris Mortimer-Goodall, Jaguar cars Competition Manager at the time, and contemporary hand written details of Records Broken and Records Bettered. There is also a Fine copy of the scarce ‘Jaguar Proves It’ booklet produced by Shell to celebrate their contribution.

I understand that these albums were presented at a special ”Montlhéry Reunion Party” held at the Hyde Park Hotel in London on 27 October 1952, for which the very rare original menu is also included in this lot. I have never been able to establish how many albums were presented on the evening but however many there were, it will be a long time before you see another one with a collection of signatures like this. William Lyons heads the list (the knighthood came later), followed by the drivers – Stirling Moss, Jack Fairman and Leslie Johnson. I can’t spot Bert Hadley’s signature, but it may be one of those I could not decipher.

Then come the rest of the Jaguar team – Bill Heynes, Arthur Whittaker, Ernest Rankin, Mortimer Morris-Goodall, Phil Weaver, Joe Thompson (two signatures – one for each bottle?), Bob Berry, Joe “Soapy” Sutton and Harry Weslake. Two guests from the Paris dealership that organised the event – Christian Delecroix (the dealer) and Gerard Leveque. Other signatures include guests Bryan Turle of Shell and Desmond Scannell, Secretary of the BDRC and there are several I have not been able to identify, so there’s a nice winter research project in here too!

The album is in fine condition with the leather binding fresh and unmarked. The photographs have little sign of age-related deterioration. The album has been protected by its own specially-made cloth-bound solander box that has the same cover imprint as the album. The solander box shows some wear, but has performed well in its task of protecting the album.

In view of the high value of this Lot, special bidding arrangements will apply. Above £6000, bidding will be in £200 steps. However, if the winning bid is less than £200 above the second bid, then that bid will succeed at the sum bid. So, if bidder A is top bidder at £8,350 and bidder B is the under-bidder at £8,280, then bidder A will win the Lot at a hammer price of £8,350, not £8,480.

This is a superb item commemorating a milestone event in the creation of the Jaguar legend and with a stunning collection of some of the most desirable Jaguar and Jaguar-related signatures of the era. A Fine album in a Good solander box.

Z/1047

The very rare brochure for the V12-engined version of the XJ220 that never went into production.

Sold Price: £1,400.00

A 12-page brochure, 11.5 x 11.5, that differs from the standard version in text as well as the photographs that show the engine (see following Lot 1048). A copy of the standard brochure is included in this lot for comparison. This is one of the rarest and most sought-after post-war Jaguar brochures. A small number were produced before the decision was taken to run with the V6 turbocharged engine. Most were then destroyed but a tiny number escaped into the wild. The front and back covers of this brochure are noticeably scuffed, but the internals are Fine.

Z/1048

Five large photos from the final design stage of the above brochure.

Sold Price: £400.00

20 x 24 and very impressive at that size. As well as the shot of the V12 engine in the car, there are two external shots – front and rear – and two internal shots. As well as the engine shot, both internals and one of the externals were used in the brochure. Probably unique as a set. Both external shots are scuffed (see photos), the others are VG nr Fine.

Z/1049

A unique concept board presented at an earlier stage of the XJ220 brochure design process.

Sold Price: £1,200.00

20 x 24. This was produced by Warwicks, who were Jaguar’s principal contractors for the likes of brochures at the time. They envisaged a 16-page brochure with the extra pages giving space for a joint introduction by Tom Walkinshaw and John Egan and more photos. As with Lot 1047 above, the V12 engine is shown. A unique perspective not only of the design process for such a key document, but also clues to the way marketing thoughts for the XJ220 were evolving. An intriguing offer that neatly complements Lot 1047. Fine. Unique.

Z/1050

Bonnet badge for the XJR 15.

Sold Price: £500.00

One of the rarest post-war Jaguar badges. A shade over 2 inches in diameter. Fine.
