How does the Georgano book compare to The Encyclopeadia of Motor Racing by Pritchard/Davey?

Putting it in 1960s German car terms, if you imagine Georgano as a stretched Mercedes Benz 600 limo then Pritchard/Davey is an NSU Prinz. :smoking:

Has anyone seen the new book by Coterie

Team Lotus the Formula 1 cars by William Taylor 60 pages 19.95 GBP.

Specially produced for the Snett-meeting??

Really new or a 'rehash' of the BIG Taylor Lotusbook?

Thanks

Michael

I haven't seen this book, but I was told about it. As far as I know, apart maybe from some competition results, there's nothing much in it that isn't in William Taylors The Lotus Book and it's only a softback. Since you can currently buy the original from Amazon for a quite remarkable £34, why spend more than half that on a mere softback that only contains a fraction of the contents of the original? Unless of course, details of classic cars like Elans, Europas, Elites and Lotus sports racers bores you. From memory, I think I paid about £50 for my copy of the BIG one, and that was several years ago.

Hello. I'd like to ask if there was any book published dealing with the FIA-FOTA war in 2009? Has any book dealt with this subject in detail? Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Going to put my TATS and 3 Janos photo books up for sale.

I love delving in and out but I'm not a scholar so it would probably suit someone else. I'm going to use the cash to clear my rather long wanted list :cool:

I'm kinda against sticking it all on Ebay. Where is best to sell specialist books like these

Looking at those, realistically you ought to be able to get something over £1000 by selling them privately. I doubt even the most generous dealer would offer you more than £500 for the lot. Your call ...

If it was me, I'd put them on eBay and offer TATS as a "buy it now" only for at least £800 (see above) and the picture books as auctions with a reserve of £75 each for Winged Sports Cars and Spyders & Silhouettes and at least £100 for Open Roads & Front Engines. It might be worth putting a BIN option on Open Roads as well, as it's out of print. Someone might be tempted by it at (say) £150, which you might not achieve at auction.

thanks guys, I've not been a seller, but I thought this would be a good way to go after some of the stuff that I have on back order (in my head!!!)

sorry west if I've stepped on any toes, I wasn't advertising here, I was hoping they guys I've learned so much from could point me in the right direction - and thanks for the heads up on teh for sale section, I never use the rest of the forums, just TNF, I didnt even know it was there

if I'm out of order I'll gladly take down the pics etc

There were some established mail-order book dealers (partly with shops) that are now long gone...
ALBION SCOTT,Millhouse Books, Connoisseur Carbooks (great catalogues with forwords of a certain TNF member).

Why are they gone out of business?? Seems , for the bigger ones, that only Chaters and Motorbooks(London) survived..

Yes David and 'relative' new Horton's . Not to forget our TNF member Simon Lewis..

But what were the reasons for the a.m. going out of business??
Albion Scott expanded too much?? Connoisseurs ,were they not connected to MRP publishing (John Bunsden??)??
Millhouse is a darker story?? As far as I know Chaters own also Menoshire wholesalers (so survival is almost guarenteed)..

As much as I respect, appreciate and want to support independent booksellers, on-line merchants (for new books, at least) just have too big a pricing advantage. For instance, Marc Sonnery's new book about the Ferrari breadvan, Rebel. Rebel, was $80 plus postage costs from all of my preferred booksellers. I finally purchased it from Amazon for less than $60, all in. I've recently retired, so I tend to pay more attention to these things now. I think the pricing power of Amazon must be the main reason for the demise of so many excellent book merchants.

Does anyone know if Horton's web site is up and running yet? I've lost track of the URL.

Up but certainly not running - what a complete waste of space. I assumed it was a new site under development until I spotted the 2008 date, and that their blog hasn't been updated since then.

Disappointing. Horton always has interesting books, even if his prices are, um, eyewatering.

I missed the post, and could not find a reference to the book in this thread. I gather it is considered Out of Print, but the author Bill Emerson still has copies at the list price of US$90 -- while in the primarily 2nd hand market, they are trying to get over US$200.

I would like to state here my sincere thanks to a really great bunch of guys who always gave us great service. We were customers since 1984 when Mike Treacy and the faithful Donovan were working out of a little shop in Acton, later joined by Alvin in the latter eighties and then Ray and Alan Barker who moved over from Albion Scott, I think after the move to Perivale, but I may be wrong.

Ray and Alan will, I understand, be at Chaters Wholesale when it opens up in September.

Thank you Menoshire and thank you Mike Treacy.

Question to the experts, please:
Quicksilver Century by Karl Ludvigsen.

I have a copy of the third edition (in German) of Karl's Mercedes Benz Race and Sportscars.

In 1995 Transport Bookman published :Quicksilver Century by KL.

What is the difference, totally new or 'only a '4th editon' of the above??

As it is not cheap ,I wanted to know before I spend my money..

Thanks Michael

Completely different. "Quicksilver Century" is a general history of Daimler Benz 1894-1994. Sits nicely alongside Beverly Rae Kimes' similar "Star and the Laurel" but has fewer illustrations and a lot more text.

Thanks Vitesse2.

I thought it is ONLY racing (not rock'n roll)...It's the company history and racing??

So ,as I have a lot others (Beverly's and others), maybe I invest my money otherwise..

Folks:

Mercedes-Benz, Quicksilver Century, by Karl Ludvigsen, covers all Mercedes-Benz racing, with just a smattering of company history. Bev Kimes's The Star and The Laurel covers the history of the company. The books complement each other very well.

We were the US importers for MBQC and brought in about 700 copies, until the publisher stupidly decided to remainder the rest in England (for a fraction of the $110 list price). Today, a used copy is very hard to find, at least in the US; the last one I saw was priced at $225 (Green Mountain Motorbooks, I think). The boxed, leatherbound version is even more rare. I think we sold four or five in the US!

MBQC is not to be confused with Karl's other book, Quick Silver, which reproduces the Cameron Earl papers on the 1934-39 German GP cars; also worth having.

Frank, what do think of Karl Ludvigsen's earlier (1971 & 74?) book, Mercedes-Benz Racing Cars from Bond/Parkhurst. I see it can be purchased at a nominal price these days. Of course the coverage would be limited compared to the newer book, but (from memory) the design, illustrations, and especially the Index are good.

I can never understand why it is that when an out of print book is commanding silly prices the publisher doesn't realise there is a market for a second edition. I accept that the total market for "our" type of book is relatively small, but it is still there if the price is right.

I contributed some very minor data (so minor that I don't expect to be given acknowledgement), but that was a minimum of 15 years ago! Just goes to show the amount of work that was put into this volume, and I for one can't wait to see the final product! :)

I long ago realised that very large, heavy books should be stored flat rather than stood up in the orthodox fashion. Latter day bindings and the actual hardback cover are often wholly inadequate for anything weighing a kilo or less if left standing upright for long periods.

Another problem is that modern central heating dries out the glued bindings, if possible books should be stored in a dry but relatively cold space. My copies of T&TS have suffered wear and tear usage (the hard cover edges are fraying) but are otherwise OK.

I'm a bit of a stickler for condition on books. They only get opened on a desk, properly supported.

All have sold thanks very much. Some of the proceeds will see me in Modena next week

Bargain of the week(?) :wave:
I ordered a copy of 'When the flag drops' by Jack Brabham.
As it arrived today I was a bit 'dissappointed' because of the torn dustwrapper, book was good.
To my astonishment the book was signed by Jack Brabham!!! And as I have another autograph-I think it isn't forged.

All for the meaty amount of 2.49 GBP.

This made my day

I will be at Pebble Beach and hope to see the book Up-close & In-person. Looks as though the publisher may the Mullin Museum itself. I will get to the museum soon (Oxnard CA) it is only 10 miles from my home.

I suspect that this book may have been referred to here, but I cannot find the post. In any event, it's now available in the UK from the discount chain "The Works". It's titled "100 Years of Motorsport" and contains photographs from the Press Association. I have seen very few of the photos before and I suspect that, if they were published at all, they would have appeared in daily newspapers. Plenty of pre-war stuff from Brooklands, Crystal Palace as well as a lot of motorcycle and speedway photos, while post-war there is a fair selection from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s right up to 2008.

Ignoring a number of fairly glaring captioning errors, it can't be bad value at £3.99 for nearly 300 photos.
