The Grand Prix Car – Volume One
Motor Racing Publications, 3rd impression November 1959.
Originally published in 1949 under the title ‘The Grand Prix Car 1906 – 1939’, this important work was subsequently revised and published as a two volume set in 1954; this copy being Volume 1 only of the two volume set.
Excellent study, well illustrated with photographs and fold-out drawings.
Hardback in dustwrapper. 267pp including illustrations in the text, plus b/w plates and fold-outs. 11.25 x 8.75 inches approx. (284mm x 226mm).
Dustwrapper tanned; small dampstain to tail of spine; light wear to head of spine; bruising to upper corner of rear fold. Boards clean with sharp corners; spotting to page edges and occasional foxing to pages otherwise internally clean.
Showing light wear commensurate with age but otherwise a particularly nice, clean copy in collectable condition – lovely.
