[collectibles] Re: Collectibles Digest V1 #26

Josh,

Glad my comments were of some help. There are indeed early SS Cars items in
my next auction. Catalogue is now on the verge of going to the printers who
cannot fit it in until the end of this month, so it should mail in mid-July.
If you register on my site I’ll send you a copy.

If you have any other queries on the auction, I’ll be happy to follow them
up one-to-one. Jag-lovers ethos, which I totally support, is that
commercial stuff is off-topic here. Although many of my customers will be
shaking their heads at even the slightest suggestion that I am running
anything remotely resembling a commercial operation - as opposed to a hobby
which has got out of control - I’d better keep my nose clean!

Regards,

Thank you for your response, I found most of the brochures you mention on
the list’s web site - I see from your own web site that you run a Jaguar
collectables auction, when is the next one due out? Would there be any
early
material like this in it?

Hi Josh!

To the best of my knowledge (having collected these things for over 25
years) SS Cars did not issue any bound brochures for these years. Exact
dating can be a little confusing due to the model year (MY) spanning two
calendar years. To the best of my knowledge, the lead ad material for
MY1931/32 was the two salmon pink, black and white complex folders - one
each for the SS1 and SS2. The MY1932/33 effort was a shaded green,white
and
black complex folder. MY1933/34 saw the first bound brochure,
supplemented
by a large complex folder.

However, that said, one thing 25 years of collecting has told me that
there
are always little surprises in store, so please regard this as a comment
rather than any definitive view! Either way, hope it is of some help.

Best regards,

Ian

Hi

Does anyone know if Jaguar ever definitely issued ‘large’ catalogues
for
the
years 1932 and 1933? I don’t see any on the web site but an Andrew
Swift
refers to them as existing in an article in an old JEC magazine about
brochures. Is Andrew Swift a member of this list?

Ian, I was under the impression that aution items would be on your web pages
to allow more people to see/ bid on them. Have I got it all wrong?

Hi Patrick!

Just watch this space - but from now on in (for this catalogue at least) I
shall demurely pass the buck on to printers and Her Majesty’s Royal Mail for
any untoward delays. As you know, my speciality is delays running into
months, not mere days and weeks!

As I have said elsewhere, you may also rest assured that your copy will come
from me personally.

Best regards,

Don,

You have it right. The auction catalogue will be up there and there will be
a bidding form too. However, the auction itself will continue to be run
off-line. In other words the site is, in effect, another way of
distributing the catalogue.

There are two reasons for handling things this way: first, the financial and
transaction costs of setting up and running the software, etc. for an
on-line operation are beyond the resources of the business at its present
scale. And, most importantly, too many of my customers have said that they
would still like to sit in the commuter train or (preferably) the garden or
boat and browse through the paper catalogue.

Hope that makes sense.

Best regards,

Ian-----------------------------------------------------
