New Esprit Book, Unique Opportunity


Recommended Posts

Hi all, Mr Admin - is it possible to pin this topic please as I'm sure it is of great interest to all.

There is a new book coming out and it is The Definative book on the Esprit. Written by Jeremy Walton and produced by William Taylor at Coterie Press, it is 224 pages of stunning pics, info and never heard before information (check out Lotus Anecdotes for one snippit). The Foreword was done by my father and some of the info came from him (though Jeremy is a leading writer on Lotus and William is by far the best publisher). Both William and Jeremy are friends of my father, hence this special offer.

The book will be out early next year HOWEVER, William has agreed to let me offer you guys first "Crack at the whip" on a special edition of the book. Here's the info. Standard book 224 pages, Special Edition has 32 extra pages of new pics/info etc. Special Edition is limited to 100 copies only! and will come in leather bound and guilt edged form. As if that isn't enough the special edition will be boxed in a presentation box and the book itself will be signed by (amongst others MJK).

Now this copy will set you back

Yes but a one off limited edition book no matter how nice and lovely it is, wont keep my beautiful motor on the road with me in it, and frankly that'll put a bigger smile on my mug

I have William Taylors 'The Lotus book' and it's companion 'Collectables'

Both are excellent books, full of pictures and info, in fact i scanned the picture

below from the Lotus book only tonight to post elsewhere on the forum.

:lol:

They both have around 260 pages and are well thumbed now!

I do think i'll go for the standard copy because of this, but i'm

sure the special one would be a nice one to have.

:)

For 250 quid, I would expect Colin Chapman to have signed it..

You realize that 250 quid over here would be nearly $650 dollars landed!! :lol: Thats 130 pints of beer :)

You guys in UK need to understand, that for us here, the cost of one pound is effectively 2.5 times that in CAD. It makes it very costly for us to buy anything out of UK. The trick here is we dont earn 2.5 times the wage.. basically for a wage earner of equal standing, if one were to earn say GBP100,000 in UK, a similar Canadian would earn CAD$100,000. So you can see the impact it has on Canada/UK commerce. It is actually cheaper for us to by a Ferrari here than to import a used lotus from UK (even if it did have LHD)

Alternatively, for you guys in UK, doing business over here is a bargain!!

Appreciate the offer.. buts its just not feasible!!

If you set no goals you shall surely reach them..

Thanks for the offer Kimbers, but I think I'll just drive over to William Taylor's house to get my copy, he lives only a half hour from me...

I do have the Lotus book S2 and the Elise book, great books!

No worries, you'll have to wait till it's all finished tho. Wish I lived just round the corner as would man I lived in the States and I would do anything right now to get out of this sorry excuse of a country.

Sorry, Tony. While I would love the special edition I can't afford it. There have been a few leather-bound collector edition boks out in the past year at about the same price so I don't think the price is out of order.

I will be buying the regular edtion, though, as it sounds great. Always like the background stories.

I thought the price was good myself. I have the new S3 book + many others and also have Jabby Crombacs "Chapman" book, signed by him, Hazel Chapman and Dad. Been offered over
