Guide to owning and actually driving the various best-selling models of the time (1903) - how one starts them, where the controls are, the greasing and oiling, how to top up with fuel...as these were all different back then and such things as pedal arrangements had not been standardized . Your hand might do the work on one car that your left foot did on another and so forth. 
Cars featured include the Daimler 14hp , DeDion Bouton 8hp ,  Gardner-Serpolet 12hp (steam!) Gladiator 6hp and 12hp , Napier16hp (described by the company's own hero S F Edge)  Argyll 8hp and 10hp, and Renault 8hp

Edited by the father of the late Lord Montagu who was one of Britain's foremost motoring pioneers, writers, publishers and exponents. Fascinating stuff from the dawn of a major industry and cultural phenomenon. 
126 pages
Published 1903.
Cover a bit worn at the corners and edges as one might expect from a book of 120+ years , a little marking on the back cloth, interior pages clean and smart
