2121.     ASTON MARTIN DB4 & DB4GT  RECTIFICATION AND RACING.  Guy Loveridge.  New publication based on the diaries and home movies of Des O'Dell , chief rectification and racing engineer for Aston Martin. DVD has some terrific footage mainly from 1961 including testing production Astons on the roads around Newport Pagnell, the Aston single seat Grand Prix car testing at Brands Hatch, racing at Le Mans (including a great sequence of a pre-race practice pitstop on a French rural road), Goodwood Tourist Trophy, Monza, Montlhery and touring Europe with the Zagato bodied DB4 GTs. before returning to the factory rectification workshop where we see Des and the mechanics working on a variety of DB4 and GT cars. The 1962 Le Mans is also filmed with some great pit footage including a DB4GT arriving backwards, having spun on its own oil!  A bonus feature on the DVD is a lovely little film of the 1963 Wiscombe Park hillclimb.  The book itself is full of anecdotes from Des O'Dell (He'd started working on a memoir before he died and Guy Loveridge has had exclusive access to this) and pictures from the O'Dell archives. Hardback book with inset DVD. 6in x 8.5in pp.48  Limited edition of 1100 copies. £35 inc. p&p
      2063.   ASTON MARTIN DBS.   Terrific large-scale model of the new Aston Martin DBS which is beautifully detailed enough for static display. - This one however has the bonus of being radio-controlled.  Produced as part of the publicity for the James Bond film "Casino Royale" (There's a movie logo sticker on the controller) the model sadly has no guns or other gadgets but it is very fast -as it should be, of course.  11in long.  £22

1695.    ASTON MARTIN & LAGONDA The V-Engined Cars.

1653.    'ASTON' The Journal of the Aston Martin Heritage Trust. Vol. 1 No.1. The inauguaral issue of this superb publication which is highly collectable. It feels more like a large format book.
