no.2007.   DEREK BELL – MY RACING LIFE.    Derek Bell with Alan Henry. 1988.  Autobiographical account of DB’s career, concentrating mostly (as you’d expect) on Le Mans and Porsche but also covers his earliest racing exploits as well as his time as a Grand Prix driver for Ferrari.  Full of great illustrations, many from his personal collection.  Hardback with dustwrapper in very good condition.  pp.208  8in x 10in. £28
no.2006.   PORSCHES AT LE MANS.     Dominique Pascal. 1984.   Described as “an incredible feat of research” This is an account of the more than 440 Porsches who have contested Le Mans in all classes since 1951. Each car gets its own entry, accompanied by a photograph (some in colour) and details of the entrant, drivers and its performance in the race. Data tables of specifications against race numbers are also here, so you can look up any car shown in an old photograph or film footage. Superb reference work and fascinating for lovers of Le Mans and Porsches. Hardback with dustwrapper in very good condition. pp.134  9in x 11in. £38
no.1993.    THE PORSCHE 911 STORY.  Paul Frere.     Originally published in 1976, this is the updated 1983 edition of this standard work on the 911.

1907    PORSCHE GUIDE by SLONIGER.  1958 US publication by noted Porsche expert and aimed at the serious Porsche owner rather than just the armchair enthusiast.

1871.    PORSCHE PAST AND PRESENT Denis Jenkinson.  Jenks was an early convert to Porsche, using his own 356 to cover motor racing from the mid 1950s onwards. This is therefore a lot more than a marque history, being filled with personal stories and analysis in his own unique style. This should be a standard work in any Porsche library.

1168.   LE MANS / PORSCHE  1968.    A sheet of 20 stamps for the 1968 Le Mans in September 1968 with artwork of what looks like a Porsche 904.
