The Forerunners of Jaguar

                 The Forerunners of Jaguar

                  in Australia, New Zealand

           and South East Asia

As the title implies, this new large-format, high-quality book tells the story of Swallow, SS and SS Jaguar products in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia (Hong Kong, India and Singapore). Compiled by Terry McGrath and John Clucas over a 25-year period, and published by the authors, it is a monumental work that is entirely unique in its size, scope and depth. Long-awaited by Swallow and SS enthusiasts in all countries, the book is the second in the series (and is in the same size and format) which began with the acclaimed Jaguar XK in Australia by John Elmgreen and Terry McGrath – long out of print and which now fetches many hundreds of pounds secondhand.

Only 500 copies of this edition will ever be printed, so early applications are advised, especially as the current price is under half that of similar quality specialist motoring books published elsewhere.  


The Standard Edition with embossed titling on the dust-jacket cover and spine, bound in black Wibalin (cloth-type finish) with silver-gilt, includes black Wibalin silver embossed slip case. A limited number of signed Standard Edition books are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Note: The Leather bound Deluxe Editions sold out very fast. There are only 6 copies of the Standard Edition left in the US, additional copies are available from Australia.

Copies shipped within the US are $350 each. That may sound like a lot, but the leather editions sold out in a month and they were $500 each.
