Book Description Dalton Watson Fine Books, London, 2008. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. LIMITED EDITION OF 1000. LIMITED EDITION OF 1000. Two volumes hard bound with dust jackets and slip case. "The most comprehensive history of Delage in English". Limited to just 1000 copies, this hefty production features two books in a stylish slip-case. The first is a direct translation of Daniel Cabert and Claude Rouxel's history of Delage and features the same inspired layout. From early single-cylinder veterans through to the last-gasp D6 saloons of the early 1950s, this 370-page work covers all Delage's fabulous machines. Best of all, it's not just a worthy production aimed at specialists, because the inspired editing and attractive layout, pull-out boxes on special models, historic events and coachbuilders - and even Delage's boat - combine to make the format far more accessible. As well as a superb selection of historic photographs, the story is further enhanced by a wealth of evocative poster and advertising designs. The second book features biographies of key Delage personnel, including engineers and drivers, together with an exhaustive list of race results. Burgess-Wise completes the English edition with details of Delage cars at London motor shows, a review of the Australian market, plus 100 pages of period adverts and road tests. The original French edition Delage-La Belle Voiture Française was the result of years of dedicated research and won the 2005 Prix Bellecour and a 2006 Society of Automotive Historians Award of Distinction. No of Pages: Vol I 376, Vol II 150. Illustrations: 1000+ black-and -white and colour images. The condition is very good. Size: 531 Pages. By the Author. Limited Edition of 1000.
