Hard cover book, coloured illustrated boards pp.160, profusely illustrated with B&W half tones and drawings.

Apart from the cover, there are six spirited and dramatic colour paintings, including a police inspector, still wearing his trilby, leaping from one speeding car to another, the Railton Special land speed record car, motorcycle dirt track racing, and motor racing in the days when men were men and cars looked like cars, not like giant computerised skateboards..

Hardback in generally good condition for age, self covers are clean and bright – bumping to corners.
