1963 hardback by Ralph Stein, reckoned at the time to be the highest paid motoring author of all.
317 large pages. A history and celebration of cars (make by make) and motoring with many lovely full colour photos of exitics like Bugatti and Duesenberg, Bugatti and Mercedes-Benz.
An ideal book to get your youngster interested in old cars - the photos are great and it's an easy work to browse through without getting put off by heavy text or lack of things to catch the eye.
I believe Lord March (of Goodwood) quoted this as his favourite book in an interview last year. It was one his grandfather had given him and which really sparked his interest in cars and racing.
fine book, spines on jacket a bit worn and faded.
