Large chunky softback featuring some wonderfully atmospheric and often full-page photos of famous names in and with cars of all kinds during the 1950s. Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer, Peter Ustinov and Pablo Picasso, Kirk Douglas and Brigitte Bardot are among many others in a range of gleaming (and ocassionally dusty)  Jaguar, Rolls-Royce, MG, Bugatti, Cadillac, Studebake, Talbot Lago... the list goes on and the photo are a mix of TIME, or  PICTURE POST- style poses or more interesting candid paparazzi shots where often the background (Nice, Monte Carlo, Cannes, Rome...) and the elegantly attired people in the background and the cars parked nearby are just as interesting. Text in several languages and as the book is from a German publisher it's much more European-based in it's view of who the  'stars' and indeed cars are, than if it had been a British or American book so you find the likes of Roger Vadim or Henri Vidal, a Lancia Aprillia or a Simca Aronde among the Burtons, Gabors and Bentleys.  Very good condition although being a large heavy softback means it is a little more prone to a bit of shelf wear than a similar hardback would be. 250 pages, over 1.5 kg
