160pp. Includes three prints of vintage cars. Illustrated in b+w and color photographs throughout. Clean and tightly bound. No markings, annotations or inscriptions.

In these pages you will find the spidery vehicles of the genesis of motoring, and the colour and tradition of graceful and leisurely Edwardian days. Here, too, are the great names of the past, the fashions dictated by early motoring, the changing laws which governed the motor car’s development and the stories of the intrepid men to whom speed was yet another element to conquer.

This is a book to delight anyone who has ever been caught by the fascinating beauty of the early motor car. Its pages form a motorcade as colourful and exciting as any veteran or vintage rally ever held. It is a sincere tribute to the automobilists of the past and the growing band of modern enthusiasts. Every aficionado of veteran and vintage days will want to have it on his own bookshelf.
