2173.     JIM CLARK REMEMBERED  Graham Gauld. 1984 (2nd ed.).   Originally published in 1974, just six years after Clark's death this gives a great insight into the driver who many felt to be the greatest of them all. Great photographs and anecdotes from those who knew him well. This second edition is identical but for the addition of a new appendix by Peter Jowitt, who conducted the investigation into the fatal crash at Hockenheim. Hardback with dustwrapper in excellent condition 6in x9in  pp. 144  £25 
2180.     RONNIE PETERSON - SUPERSWEDE. Alan Henry in association with Ronnie Peterson.  1978.    . First published in 1975 as 'Ronnie Peterson - In Search of Perfection', this is a revised and updated edition published after Peterson's death in '78. Softcover. 6.5in x9in pp.200.  £18   
2185.     TEAM LOTUS:  THE INDIANAPOLIS YEARS - Andrew Ferguson 1996.  Excellent history of Lotus' assault on Indy with Jim Clark and written with a wealth of Lotus team documentation. Author Ferguson was their competitions director. Hardback with dustwrapper in good condition. (some fading to spine and end boards are marked 'damaged corners' but the corners are only very slightly rubbed, not dented. 10in x10in. pp.240.  £70
2161.     COLIN CHAPMAN'S LOTUS     Robin Read.    Subtitled "The Early Years, the Elite and the Origins of the Elan" it actually covers way more than that. The elevens, elevens, formula junior and 'sixties grand prix cars are all covered together with  a wealth of information and rare photographs of the factories and people involved. Signed on the title page by Robin Read, Hazel Chapman, "young Mike"(Costin) and a host of others which I can't read(!). The occasion was the book's launch on 29 June 1989 and the dedication is to "Frank". This, plus another "to the aerodynamicist!" suggest Frank Dernie, Lotus' chief designer at that time. Autographs aside, this is an amazingly detailed book: easily the most detailed Lotus volume I've seen. Hardback with dustwrapper in very good condition. 8in x11in  pp.335.   £80
2158.     LOTUS  - A VERY SPECIAL YEAR.      The Story of a World Championship.   Rare book produced to celebrate their 1972 World Championships; both for Emerson Fittipaldi as Driver and Lotus as constructor. (It's noticeable how much the cover blurb and image play up the "John Player Special" branding with rather fewer mentions of Lotus - not that Colin Chapman probably minded much). Written by Mike Doodson, Peter WarrAndrew Marriott and someone called Eoin Young...  Articles on the cars and profiles of Fittipaldi and Chapman, plus a race by race account of the season. - and lots and lots of photographs. Softcover item in good condition (some slight water marking to some pages). 11.5in x 8in. pp.112 £20

All the F1cars are here as well as the road models, hybrids like the Lotus Cortina etc. etc. Each model illustrated with studio photos of an (or in some cases THE) actual car, period brochures, memorabilia etc. etc. Superb. Hardback in excellent condition with dustwrapper which is very good apart from the fact that the yellow colour has almost faded away entirely (I've seen several copies of this book with the same effect - must have been something to do with the printers) - The book itself is pristine throughout. 12in x12in. pp.256 £45
