Inside a Legendary Treasure House. They tried to stop the distribution of this book, when it first came out, such was the controversy surrounding this un-parrelled collection of exotic Motor Cars, the personal museum of the brothers, Schlumpf. Rumours were rife in the 'old car world' of cars bought from all quarters of the World some at auction through third parties, never to be seen again. The discovery of the Museum was compared by the Guardian to be the equivalent of 'breaking open Tutankhamun's Tomb'. The brothers were in business employing great numbers at a very low wage to subsidise their extravagance. When it all came out, the lynch mob wanted to move in. But the law intervened concerning  matters of embezzlement etc. that saw the Brothers lose everything.. Despite the outcry at the time, the dust has settled and the Museum exists for your enjoyment and in part pays back the poor workers for their (unbeknown to them at the time) financial input. 189 large pages good condition book and jacket, some shelf wear at edges
