Description

I need more shelf space and am having a cull of books and models to create that space.

The late Bill Boddy, long time Editor and lodestone of the magazine ‘Motor Sport’ was recognised as THE authority on the history of Brooklands Motor Race circuit and those that competed there.

He has written several books about the circuit and the cars that raced there, but his most important work is this book, ‘The History of Brooklands Motor Course 1906-1940’. 363 pages of pure history about the origins of British motor racing.

The amount of information about cars that raced at Brooklands is incredible and thoroughly indexed with two indexes, one for personalities and the other for the brand of car raced, of which the majority are English makes of the time.

First published in 1950, this is the revised (1979) edition of the Grenville Publishing June 1957 first impression and was signed for the owner by Bill Boddy in September, 1993.

The book is not new of course, but the condition would pass for new, being what is called ‘fine’ in the book trade as is the dust cover. There is no evidence of foxing or shelf wear and the dust cover could be mint.

Checking for copies on the second-hand market only one comes up, on Abe, at a price considerably in excess of what I am asking and could not be in better condition. Because of the scarcity and value of this book, the buy it now price includes registered postage within Australia.

The book can be collected in Canberra, ACT and if it is, I’ll deduct the cost of postage and send you an invoice reflecting the reduced postal cost.

This book will weigh almost three kilograms properly packed for Australia Post handling, and registered postage is included in the buy it now price of $195 (Australia Post has yet another rise in parcel charges). I do not charge for handling and packaging. The books can also be collected in Canberra and the postage component rebated for the buyer.
