|Estimate||£8,000 - £10,000|
A copy of the F1 Opus Champions limited edition book, number 34, with a world-wide production of 99 copies and pre-orders for 60, there were only six books available to the British market thus making this a very rare and collectable publication. Produced with help and endorsement of Bernie Ecclestone, this book is one of the largest and heaviest ever produced at 50x50cm and weighing in at 35kg. This hand-stitched leather bound book comes with a carbon fibre clam case and covers 60 years of Formula 1 history; it has over 850 pages with more than 1,250 photographs, many from Mr. Ecclestone's private collection with 50% never before published. With contributions from 23 World Formula 1 champions, the first being Sir Jack Brabham in1950, going through to Sebastian Vettel in 2013 (including two drivers now no longer with us), this book comes with a framed and glazed signed signature page from all the featured drivers. Also included with this will be an original large Polaroid photograph (50x60cm) of one of the 40 featured drivers or F1 personality's as well as two grand stand tickets to any Formula 1 race meeting in the 2015 season making this a very desirable and incredibly unique package.
