143pp. 1936. First edition. 8vo. Scarce. A good copy in original publisher’s red cloth boards – some colour fading in patches to the red boards, some bumping to corners. A number of photographic plates – all as called for – illustrate the text. Some spotting – mostly to the endpapers, fore-edges and the title page – but never heavy and reasonably scattered. Boasts rare dust jacket in good condition for age. Scuffing and small tears to top and spine, a little grubby on white reverse. Price clipped.
The story of how Benz and Daimler came to define the motor car as we know it today. Nice addition to any library.
