About this Item

Therse three large, weighty and impressive volumes provide a pictorial history of the evolution of heavy road transport in the Netherlands, Zeeland in particular, from 1925 to 1999. Although dealing mainly with heavy trucks, other vehicles designed or modified for specialised uses or loads are included. While most of the vehicles are pictured going about their everyday work, this is the not always the case with some seen at festive occasions, in accidfents or incidents. The author has built up an amazing collection of images of early lorries, not to mention the occasional shot of the predecessor --- real horsepower or even donkey power. Most of the older vehicles are pictured in b/w photos but a large number from later eras are in colour, some to full page with other pages carrying three images. All three volumes are real "picture books" with a forward provinding a single page of text. However, each photograph is captioned, with all text in the Dutch language. For the English-only reader the salient facts can be taken from the captions. These books are being sold as a set only. They are ex-library, with only two indications of this use --- a small while label on the spine base and a codes label lower corner FFEP. The condition of each is VG+ while internally they are in excellent order and little used. Each volume has heavy laminated covers of the same basic design of truck manufacturer symbols to the front panel, the spine area has been reinforced with wide clear tape, also the front and rear gutters, making the text block firm in the covers. There are no written inscriptiuons. Each volume is estimated to carry well in excess of 600 images. Volume 1, published December 1999, 300 pages, ISBN 901-3427-1: Volume 2, published November 2000, 320 pages, ISBN 90-805942-1-0 and Volume 3. published November 2001, 304 pages, ISBN 90-805942-2-9.0.
