These are press prints and the typescript caption sheets have been removed from the backs and mounted directly below the prints. Ruthrauff and Ryan Inc. of Detroit were the agency and the client seems to have been Chrysler as the copy features the Dodge truck in the background almost as much as the record car!  Fabulous, rare photos of a historic event. Both John Cobb and Reid Railton are clearly visible in the sideview shot. Mounted on boards (originally framed but these have deteriorated) with brown paper backing from the framing. I think the prints are sepia tinted rather than faded with age.  Some water damage to one of the mount cards but the prints themselves are both excellent.

no.2049.   ROWLAND EMETT:  ALARMS AND EXCURSIONS. ..."and Other Transports Transfixed " Often forgotten these days, Emett was, in his day as influential and popular as Heath Robinson or Brockbank.  His favourite subject matter was ramshackle inventions rendered with an extraordinary florid line.  Best known for his rococo and gothic trains, this book concentrates more on road vehicles: steam rollers, bicycles, trams, and of course cars. Most of these are from the 40s and 50s I'd guess but they are timeless. 1977 Edition hardback in very good condition with similarly fine dustwrapper. 8.5in x 11in.No page numbers but approx pp.94   £23
no.2048.   MOTOR MUSEUM HEADSCARF.   1960s Italian made silk-style (actually "100% acetate") multicoloured scarf depicting exhibits at the Beaulieu motor museum: a 1909 Rolls-Royce, 1910 omnibus, a showman's engine, 1929 'Golden Arrow' and a (curiously green) 'Bluebird'.  These are becoming very collectible now, thanks to Goodwood and other venues where period dress is popular.  aprox. 26in square. £60

no.2042.   THE GRAND PRIX CAR.    The rare two-volume set of Pomeroy's classic and respected tomes on Grand Prix cars and races up to the mid-1950s. Superb technical descriptions and the famous fold-out cutaways, technical drawings, photographs etc. Still the most exhaustive coverage of the subject. Fold-out cutaways extend to 11in x 17in and include the 1914 Grand Prix Mercedes, Type 35 Bugatti, Delage, Peugeot etc. Large format 11in x 8.5in.  The publication dates differ because Pomeroy wrote his first book in 1948 ("The Grand Prix Car 1906-1939') and when Grand Prix racing began again after WW2 it became obvious that he should update, but enlarging such a big volume was not an option. It was divided and published again as the updated two-volume set as offered here. The volumes were (for some misguided reason) offered separately, and as most people thought they already had vol. 1 they just bought vol.2 so the reprint runs immediately became unbalanced. The original single 1948 volume referred to above is a fine book but this is the set to have.

This matched set (both volumes inscribed "Best wishes, Valerie, Christmas 1957") is in good condition with both volumes retaining their dustwrappers, which have a few tears (almost inevitable in such big heavy books) but they are now protected from further damage by removable clear plastic sleeves. The inside pages are excellent: clean and unmarked. Email me for more information and photos.  8.5in two-volume set. pp. 267 + 344  £400

1783.  MOTOR RACE GAME. "A journey of 440 miles from Edinburgh to London with incidents en route" Board game with hazards such as punctures, collisions and being arrested for "scorching" between Coventry and Oxford.  My favourite has to be the segment marked "Precipice- Killed - out of the game" !   This has been professionally framed under glass so I've no idea what's on the other side of the board.  Also included is a set of six painted lead cars which fit on the segments so you can play the game as well as hanging it on the wall. . No date but I'd guess 1920s from the artwork. Frame is approx. 18in x 12in. £160
