Not dated however the text would suggest the period May 1923 to 1927 when Vickers sold Wolseley Motors. Copies of the brochure were presumably still being distributed a good number of years post 1927 as evidenced by the list of neatly crossed out companies that were no longer under the control of Vikers

Hardback – decorated grey paper boards and a cloth spine, in box. 82pp including b/w illustrations and colour plates. 11.25 x 7.5 inches approx. (285mm x 191mm).

A quite superb copy and still presented in it’s original storage box; it would be hard to find a better example of this scarce publication.

£125.00
