The Modern World Book of Motors
Published in the 1950s, this book The Modern World Book of Motors is a fascinating insight into Britain’s enthusiasm for motor cars, motor racing, the Monte Carlo Rally, world speed records, motoring and the war, speedway racing and motor cycling.
This was an era when Britain was recovering from the war. The car was evolving and people began to have fun. Racing at Brooklands, speed records, and of course, everyone wanted a car. This book captures all of that.
Written by Laurence H Cade. Published by Sampson Low in London in the 1950s. A hardback with a nice illustrated dust-wrapper. Lots of wonderful black and white photographs plus colour illustrations.
This fully illustrated book has a nice slightly scuffed dust-wrapper. The fly leaf is marked and the title page is slightly marked. The inside pages are clean and bright. Not price-clipped.
A nice book for any enthusiast of the history of cars and motoring in the UK.
