First edition 1949. Last book written by Malcolm Campbell before his death. (a small paragraph from the publishers noting that Campbell had not seen the proofs as he died before publication). This attempts to explain “the lure of speed” before devoting chapters to the early days of record breaking, then progressively faster records, the work of driving at high speeds, organising record attempts.
Ex library book in fair condition with a number of stickers and stamps etc. Otherwise inside a reasonably clean copy, some marks from time to time. Exterior boards are well used, bumping to corners, shelf wear and sunning to spine. Still a readable reference copy – priced accordingly.
