no.2054.   MR. PUNCH  AWHEEL. J. A Harmiton (Ed.) A collection of original magazine pieces on "the humours of motoring and cycling" with the inevitable cartoons- well over a hundred of them.  No date but must be 1900s.  Interesting to see that cyclists were perceived as as much of a menace (and figures of fun) as motorists.  A lovely hardbacked book with gilt lettering and profile of Mr. Punch on the cover. and spine.

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
