A superb Dalton Watson Volume on the same lines as their Rolls-Royce Books. The story goes back to 1870 and the dawn of the horse-drawn age. The transition for a young company was perhaps less painful than for those stepped in the traditions of the carriage trade and they quickly saw the opportunities that lay ahead. So the first photos in this book show their craftsmanship adorning some of the earliest Automobile Chassis at the turn of the old century. The 302pp book shows the trend & development of design not only in keeping with the ever improving chassis, but to meet to needs & whims of the ever changing customer as fashion dictates! Of particular interest are the extracts fro their Order book from 1923 to 1939 detailing the body requirements to each chassis, Make/Model & Reg.No. An abundance of photos and fine captioning support the excellent text. The book and jacket are both in fine clean condition  Rare item.
