Speed on Salt
by George Eyston and W. F. Bradley, foreword by Sir Malcolm Campbell
B. T. Batsford Ltd, 1st edition 1936
A history of the speed record attempts at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.
Dustwrapper and frontispiece by Brian Cook.
Hardback – cloth spine over papered boards, title in red to spine and in blue to front board, in a dustwrapper. pp xii, 84, plus colour frontispiece and b/w plates. Size: 10 x 7.5 inches approx. (253mm x 194mm).
A page clipped from the November 19, 1937 issue of ‘The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News’ loosely inserted.
Light wear and rubbing to dustwrapper; dusty and foxed in places; spine sunned and toned (not quite so dramatic as the images suggest); toned and dusty to flap folds and top edge; heavy offsetting to verso. Light shelf wear to boards and spine ends otherwise covers clean and bright; spine lightly sunned. Light offsetting to endpapers; pages a touch dusty but otherwise clean throughout.
Overall, showing light wear but otherwise a nicely preserved copy – very attractive with its wrap-round dustwrapper artwork.
