About the Author:

Nick Georgano was born in London in February 1932. He began his career as a motoring writer at the age of 7 when he prepared a truck catalogue which was typed out by his long-suffering mother. He was 16 when he first attempted to write an 'encyclopedia'. On coming down from Oxford in 1956 he became a preparatory schoolmaster during which time he helped his friend Ralph Doyle to revise his The World's Automobiles . Nick completed this after Ralph's death in 1961, an invaluable apprenticeship for editing the Complete Encyclopedia of Motorcars, first published in 1968. On the strength of this he abandoned the schoolroom for the typewriter and has since edited or written 31 titles including The Complete Encyclopedia of Commercial Vehicles (editor), The Encyclopedia of Motor Sport (editor), A History of Transport (editor), History of Sports Cars, History of the London Taxicab, Early Days on the Road (with Lord Montagu of Beaulieu), The American Automobile - a Centenary, The Art of the American Automobile, Britain's Motor Industry - The First 100 Years (editor). For the latter and for The Complete Encyclopedia of Motorcars he was awarded the Montagu Trophy of the Guild of Motoring Writers. He was Head Librarian at the National Motor Museum from 1976 to 1981. He is a member of the National Motor Museum Advisory Council and Trustee of the Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust and the Horseless Carriage Foundation, California.

From Booklist:

This volume is a supplement to the well-received, two-volume Beaulieu Encyclopedia of the Automobile (2001), but it also stands alone. A survey of the history of coach building, which came to an end in the 1950s, is followed by A-Z entries for various makes. Libraries that own the two main volumes will not necessarily need to add this more-specialized one unless they are aiming for comprehensive coverage. RBB
