Description

Facsimile of a booklet prepared by Amherst Villiers for distribution at the 1929 Olympia Show.

It deals with his superchargers and the story goes that he wrapped up the copies, took them to Olympia, went to the Bentley stand, discovered that his nameplate did not appear on the blower casing of the supercharged 4,1/2-litre, walked out of the Show, and never distributed these booklets.

If this be true and not legend none of you will have seen the pamphlet, which contains much interesting information about Villiers Roots blowers in general and their application to the 4.1/2-litre Bentley in particular.

Softcover in good condition throughout. Scarce.
