Thank you for announcing this book. Does anyone know of a source in the United States, or if a source is planned?

Now that you actually have the Bucciali book, would you please be so kind as to give me than name and address of the actual publisher "Edition de l'auteur" I would assume it was self-published by Mr.Huet, who's wife, I believe, is realted to Bucciali. Huet is also a Gordini expert. I think he owned as many as 8 of them at one time ("real" Gordinis; not Renault Gordinis) He also did a Gordini book back in the 1980s, which is excellent.
I would like to try and get copies.
Check out the www.editions-palmier.fr web site
They actually publish some books on obscure subjects, and seem to be the only place that has some other obscure books. If you like obscure, they also show a new book on CG!

I will write directly to Huet to see what kind of discount he will give in quantities, as no one seems to be interested in importing copies to the US.

Not even the famous MOTORBOOKS in Oceola?

Motorbooks is USELESS, as far as I am concerned. They will not bother with anything unusual, nor will they import anything that isn't multilingual or in English. EWA has a bigger selection of "obscure" books, but their prices are high.
One of the bigger car book stores in England might have it eventually, but I e-mailed Chatters, and they knew nothing about it. The stores in England also don't seem to be interested in importing anything that isn't multilingual or English only...

Edited to add: Having now looked at the book more thoroughly, there are detailed histories of the six TAVs built, and all seem to be accounted for one way or another. Perhaps an earlier BUC is "out there" somewhere avaiting discovery, but it seems unlikely.
