Description: A scarce survey of the world's greatest cars built between 1920 and the mid-'60s. The vehicles featured are noteworthy for their styling and mechanical engineering. This book will entertain and inform both the collector and the motoring enthusiast.
Over 250 superb, full-colour illustrations, plus a number of photographs – in b&w and sepia – and woodcuts. Illustrated pastedowns and endpapers feature 5 superb depictions of classic cars in colour.
Black boards with a stunning pattern of silver, gilded historic car badges; silver gilded text on spine. Price-clipped jacket has light scuffing along the top and a tiny nick where it meets the head of the spine at the back. There are also some light scratches that are only visible under direct light. Were it not for some sporadic foxing, the pages would've been in superb condition. As it is, they are crease-free and remain crisp and bright.
