Not sure if this has been mentioned here already, but the prolific Anthony Pritchard is preparing another title on a subject popular with TNFers due out in 2014
http://www.veloce.co...roup=Motorsport
This looks very much like one of the "...In Camera" series that Haynes published and some of his other recent publications by Veloce look like books that Haynes would have been publishing before their recent retrenchment.

The concept of "Lunches with Legends" seems strangely familiar...  :drunk:

 

And the F1 Retro series, whilst extremely promising, does seem ambitious.  At least with Haymarket backing it shouldn't run into financial trouble.  Speaking of which, does anyone know if Haynes is continuing its official Le Mans history series, which so far covers the years 1949 to 1989?

While I was looking for something else at Abebooks.com I ran across this title.

 

Riley & Scott Mk III

Jesse Russell, Ronald Cohn

Published by Book on Demand, Miami, 2013

ISBN 10: 5509353929 / ISBN 13: 9785509353925
 
It also mentions a publisher "Bookvika". I was interested in this sort of thing and was looking for more English language titles (there are a ton of Russian titles) and ran across some Google entries that said Bookvika appeared to be a Russian criminal scam. If so, I am surprised at Abebooks. Any comments?

Just another of the various con artists putting pretty covers on Wikipedia articles and flogging them to unsuspecting punters. We've discussed others before: VDM Publishing (aka Alphascript, Betascript, Fastbook Publishing and Doyen Verlag) and LLC Books for example.

 

Caveat emptor.

Dear Stan..YES on abe!!Try to search for a title...you will get a lot of hits. Then try the same, but EXcluding 'print on demand'--you will probably get one third or a half of the titles...

Maybe there is even a title-generator, which picks your search words and compile them to a still to be produced title...

Be patient, folks. Noted US racing reporter Jonathon Ingram is completing a book that has been a few years in the making. It is the history of the Riley cars and people. It is being done by a legitimate publisher and will be the definitive word on Riley and its offshoots. So stand by.

Here are some shots of Bob Riley's very first car, built in Louisiana in 1959. Its chassis was Bob's own design, the body was aluminum and fiberglass and the engine and gearbox came out of a wrecked Corvette. Note that the results listed are actually class finishes [CM].

Ian Allan appear to have remaindered all four published titles in the 'Racing Colours' series. I had already seen British Racing Green in Best Buy Books in Bath but was in Trowbridge today, where Bell's had all four at £8.99 a pop. I believe both of them source stock through Gardners of Bexhill, so these are unlikely to appear in the big chain remainder stores.

 

Bell's also had Graham Hill Scrapbook Vol 1 at half price - which suggests we will probably never see Vol 2 :well: - plus an assortment of single copies of Veloce titles including BRM V-16, the Pat Moss biography, The British at Indianapolis and a few more I can't remember. :blush:

Postscript have had the Graham Hill Scrapbook for some time at £12.99

Gang, I have to admit that I'm quite proud of these four Racing Colours, a series that I edited and in which I wrote two of the titles. They are both broad and deep views of all aspects of racing in the four great nations.

 

The Steve Cavalieri renderings alone are worth the price!

 

I'm not surprised that they've been remaindered. IA printed 5,000 of each, which was very ambitious, and then gave them no promotion whatsoever.

 

Get 'em while you can!

I am about to post the latest versions of "Books That Never Were", "Books In the Works", and "Books We'd Like To See".  You will see that I have identified a number of items in "Books In the Works" as highly unlikely, and these will be moved to "Books That Never Were" the next time unless someone has further information.

 

Thanks to all of the posts and e-mails that help keep these maintained! As always send or post corrections, additions, deletions, etc.

Books that very few might like to see but are in process anyway:

 

The Unexpurgated History of Maxton, by Yrs Trly

 

Also, but thankfully not in that category, David Bull has a new book in the works concerning Lancia and DeVirgilio, the innovative engineer responsible for the Aurelia and the Lancia V6 (he was married to Gianni Lancia's daughter).

A book that stayed on my wish list for a long while was a semi-technical Ferrari book by the designer John Barnard. It's probably been 10 years ago and I don't remember where I saw it. Might have been Autosport.

 

Another moving target of interest to me is "Build Your Own Single Seater: On a Budget" by Chris Gibbs. I've been tracking this one for a couple of years and according to Amazon.UK the latest estimate is 07APR15. The author has picked up a co-author (Andrew Hugill) as I read somewhere he had health issues.

Books that never were - These books were probably never published, and likely never will be:
Updated 19-Oct 2013.
 
"Formula 1 Legends Series" by Pierre Menard & Jacques Vassal. According to the flap of No. 2 (Ascari), 15 books were planned. Of these, six were published: No. 1 (Fangio), No. 2 (Ascari), No. 3 (Moss), No. 9 (Lauda), No. 12 (Prost), and No. 13 (Senna). The missing ones are No. 4 (Brabham), No. 5 (Clark), No. 6 (G. Hill), No. 7 (Stewart), No. 8 (Fittipaldi), No. 10 (G. Villeneuve), No. 11 (Piquet), No. 14 (Mansell) and No. 15 (M. Scumacher).

 

Hi heliosiem.

 

Do you happen to have any information regarding why did the remainder books stay out of publishing? Was it something to do with Chronosport going out of business?

Hi Moebius -

 

Sorry, I do not have any information as why the rest of the series was not published. Someone else on the forum may know more.

A quick note on the FERRARI Racecars 1966-83 Ian Catt , COTERIE.

Got mine today. Slim sofbound. Interesting private photos of F1,Prototypes GTs.Good and interesting paddock shots of different noses(practice only) etc. (Björn sorry, almost no transporters).

BUT and a big BUT. When you are used to the excellent Coteriestandard--then this is a big let-down. Paperquality (if you can speak of quality here),colour separation and print looks like an early Eastern block production

of the seventies...And the price for a mere 128 pages at 25 GBP...

Sorry, I didn't realise that's what you meant by complete!  If you want to know the entrants, you'll have to go to Steve Small's Grand Prix Who's Who.  But even he won't cover the case where entrant and owner are different.

I too received this book last week and thought for £25 it was extremely expensive for a small, thin and frankly low quality product.  I fear that the other 5 books in this series may never happen as this title probably will not sell once people see the quality of the images (I've often taken better myself) and captions that are basic and on some occasions show an awful disregard to editing and proof reading.

 

Coterie also want £12.50 postage from their own site which is disgraceful, I'm 'glad' I got my copy from Chaters.

Thanks for replies and comments to my quest. I see there is nothing new and I look to be the only one interested . There are several examples of different names in entrant /owner/team infos in F1.

Also in sportsracing and if you study the Wimppfen book he in my opinion has not discovered the importance of these names , Thus rendering his fantastic results book in a rather Chaos regarding teams names.

I mail books internationally (from the US) almost daily, and that's about what it costs in postage to ship a lightweight book from the US to England via First-Class International Mail (20-30 days delivery). Priority Mail International is quicker (10 days) but costs at least double.

Coterie's pricing and postage costs seem rather ... um ... strange on this particular title. UK postage on much heavier books is only £6.95 and the US retail of $29.95 doesn't exactly sit well with the UK retail of £25.

 

Overall they appear to be gouging those of us on this side of the Big Pond: check the European and US prices of (for example) Jeremy Walton's new BMW book! $149 (roughly £92) as opposed to £145 here. :eek:

Additionally, Coterie have a UK base in Luton, which therefore means they will ship to UK addresses from the UK.  I work for an academic publisher and know that postage costs via couriers within the UK will be under £5.  Also, as a publisher they will have arrangements with the various couriers (DHL, UPS etc) at agreed rates so £12.50 is massively high.

That was my point  ;) They appear to have applied the US export postage rather than UK to that title only, but I'm still astounded at the retail price disparity, which is more than reminiscent of the mid-80s when all the US academic publishers hiked up their prices to more or less par at one dollar to one pound in that short period where the two currencies were trading very close to each other. They then 'omitted' to drop their prices again when the pound strengthened and the dollar weakened, meaning they were making massive profits on their UK operations, by charging £19.95 for a $21.95 book - and still only giving academic net terms of 20-25% to booksellers. Now Barabbas was a publisher ... :smoking:

Today I have emailed Coterie to ak from where books for U.K. customers are shipped. Looking on Google Earth the UK address appears to be in an office block so it is unlikely that stock would be held at that location. Any response I receive will be posted here.

 

As Fbarrett states if the book is shipped from the USA then that is about the going rate. As an aside, the U.K. cost of shipping printed paper rate of a book weighing one kilo to Europe is £6.50 whilst elsewhere it would cost £7.79.

 

As for Colbul1 stating that costs via courier in the UK would be under £5.00 - that all depends on the annual volume dispatch of the contract negotiated.  We are small publishers and would be very grateful if we could negotiate such a rate!
