Lavishly illustrated in b&w and color. The first part of this book describes the history of the early years of the motor car, the breakthroughs and setback of the new industry. It describes the experimental steam and electric powered vehicles that preceded the internal combustion engine, starting with Nicholas Cugnot's first steam carriage of 1769 and ending the Leon Serpollet's aerodynamic curiosity called the Easter Egg, which in 1902 held the world land speed record at 75 mph. The story is then traced from the first true motor vehicles through the end of the century, when the principles of mass production had became established. The second part o the volume is devoted to an account of the individual great cars that traveled the roads of Europe and America during the inter-war years.
