Jaguar at the 24 Heures du Mans
Vintage 1952 Le Mans Flyer / Handbill.
A great document that is VERY, VERY rare (the very first one that we have ever had or even seen).
The front shows a great shot of the start of the 1951 running with the number 20 Jaguar C-Type of Peter Walker and Peter Whitehead already leading the pack (they would win the 1951 edition), followed by the number 3 Cunningham C2-R of Briggs Cunningham and George Huntoon (DNF in 1951) and the rest of the pack.
The insides gives introduction on ticket prices and a plan of the grandstands while the back shows a great pits scene.
Dimensions: approximately 8.5 x 11 inches (when unfolded).
Good condition for its age but some minor, age-related, yellowing due to the nature of the paper.
The race was won by Herrmann Lang and Fritz Riess in their Mercedes-Benz 300 SL with a total of 277 laps to their name.

Vintage 1952 Le Mans 24 Hours Flyer
1959 Le Mans Race Poster REPRODUCTION.
June 20 & 21, 1959.
It measures approximately:16 x 22 inches40 x 56 cm
The 1959 Le Mans poster is part of the so-called "Major Illustrators" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1954 - 1963 and in which the cream of the crop of French motorsport illustrators such as Geo Ham, Jeudon and Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.
The design of the 1959 poster was by Michel Beligond and was his second work for the Le Mans 24 hours race.
Beligond was preceded by Geo Ham and Jeudon and the switch to this relatively new artist immediately gave a more realistic rendering of the race.
The drivers running towards their cars in a typical Le Mans start with the international flags flying over the pit box building. With a little good will, one can see a Ferrari and a Jaguar ready to be taken to the tarmac by their sprinting drivers.
The race was won by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby in their Aston Martin DBR1/300 (S/N 2) with a total of 323 laps to their name.
