PREVIEW: ephemera, trans­port & sport auc­tion, spe­cial auc­tion ser­vices, New­bury, 20 april

An 80th Birth­day Gala Din­ner was held at Lon­don’s Dorch­ester Ho­tel on 24 June 1991 to hon­our mo­tor rac­ing ace, Juan Manuel Fan­gio. An in­ter­est­ing se­lec­tion of ephemera from this event is in­cluded in SAS’s sale on 20 April. The star item has to be the Fan­gio-signed pro­gramme with at­ten­dees list, plus a per­sonal in­vi­ta­tion that has Mur­ray Walker’s sig­na­ture on the en­ve­lope. The es­ti­mate for this is £100-200. For Mor­gan fans there is an orig­i­nal, framed acryli­con-can­vas paint­ing by Brian Chap­man of a Jap-en­gined three-wheeler that also car­ries a £100200 es­ti­mate. There’s also 30 of the 36-part set of Mo­tor Re­pair and Over­haul­ing mag­a­zines pub­lished in 1939 (es­ti­mated at £3050). For hours of happy brows­ing there is a se­lec­tion of older Ord­nance Sur­vey and later Lan­dranger se­ries maps that is also es­ti­mated at £30-50.
