An American family of five toured Europe for six weeks in their Jaguar. It wouldn't be a big deal, had it not happened in 1954 when Europe was just in a phase of self-discovery, less than ten years after the end of World War II. Amos Ball and his family were not discouraged by the turmoil and took a tour through England, France, Italy and Switzerland. Their vehicle: a grand Jaguar Mark II, at that time the fastest four-door limousine in Europe. Amos Ball captured all their experiences in his Travels with a Jaguar, which also served to illustrate a fascinating portrait of post-war Europe. In additon, Ball wrote the first ever book in which the Jaguar was the theme. Jaguar-lover and publisher Christoph Meier-Siem rediscovered this travel journey, which today is a rare, sought-after piece of literature: - the complete travel story from 1954, newly translated, and including an added booklet 'What to Drive?'. This collectors' edition, limited to 500 copies, has been numbered by hand.
