FOUNDER OF HAYNES PUBLISHING GROUP JOHN HAYNES' FIRST 3 BOOKS!

John Haynes

Building a “750” Special, Building a Ford 10 Special and Special Builders Manual

Published: Auto-Publications, London, 1959

Date:

BUILDING A “750” SPECIAL: 6th edition, 15th printing, October 1959, 44pp, sketches in the text, paper covers. In very good condition, with a touch of browning to the edges of the front cover and some light stains to the bottom left of the rear cover; BUILDING A FORD 10 SPECIAL: 4th edition, 4th printing, August 1959, 44pp, sketches in the text, light vertical crease to front cover, otherwise excellent condition; SPECIAL BUILDERS MANUAL: 1st edition, 1st printing, July 1959, 44pp, sketches in text, in excellent condition. I believe these to be the first three booklets written by John Haynes whilst he was at school (‘Building a 750 Special’ was first published in 1956) and then during his national service (‘Building a Ford 10 Special’ was first published in 1958 and ‘Special Builders Manual’ in 1959). He went on to found the company that became the Haynes Publishing Group. These are rare booklets, a full set is exceptional.
