Lot 207: Visions of Speed: The Art of R. A. Nockolds. Eleven (of 12) Artist's Proofs of Roy Nockolds' work prepared for a Private Edition of only 250 printed (850 copies planned), of an album published by Thackwell & Company, Monte Carlo, in 1999, the images were produced from the original glass plates on which Nockolds recorded his studio work and are printed on high quality laid art paper, all of the prints are marked 'Proof' in pencil in the lower margin together with full titles, and nine of the eleven are also shown as hand-painted (by either Niki Hayles or Wayne Burrows), the only missing print is Number 16 (Road Race), the remaining pages in the complete volume of 28 leaves being text or photographs. loosely contained in the front and back covers of what would have been the final publication, each of the dark grey hardback cloth covers (decorated with a repeated triangular winner's flag design), measuring the same size as the prints, 12 x 21in (31 x 53cm), the prints are all in pristine condition.
