Date of Publication: 1955

In stock


The superb art work of Carlo Demand captures fascinating moments of motor racing history with artistic licence to create the drama of ‘that’ second in time!

The book covers the period from the earliest days of motor sport through to the mid 1950s. The emphasis is placed on Mercedes and Auto-Union.

Ernst Rosemann complements the artwork with supporting, informative, text of the event covered. The illustrations are absolutely fantastic.

Hardback in good condition. Front cover is bright but with some inevitable marking. Inside there is browning especially to edges throughout, which is common with this book, but otherwise clean and readable. Slightly looseness to binding but all intact, bar one page which is loose. Good example of a rare book.
