Description

Emil Jellinek was introduced to his first 6hp Daimler. In the following year he ordered no less than 140 various models. Soon he was the sole agent for Daimler outside Germany. In fact he gave his daughter’s name to all the cars be bought for resale from Daimler, thus establishing the world-renowned car which carries the three pointed star, Mercedes. He was quick to see the value of motor racing, and entered Mercedes in the great classic car races of those early days.

1966 first UK edition. GT Foulis. Hard cover in very good condition throughout. Very clean. Dust cover also very good with only very minor scuffing. Good example of an interesting book.
