Probably the nicest copy of this seminal work on early Bentley that we have seen in a long time.

By turning interviewing surviving personalities who played a role in the evolution of these marvelous touring cars, Michael Hay has produced a history of rare depth and accuracy. Included are the personal correspondence of W.O. Bentley and F.T. Burgess, financial statements, and a photo-by-photo tour of the Bentley factory at the height of production. Every aspect of design and production is analyzed, along with Bentley's tremendous competition record at LerMans and elsewhere. It is also a tale packed with extraordinary characters and the fascinating rise and fall of the company itself. Rare archival photographs are supplemented by 40 color images, including a specially commissioned cutaway of a 4 1/2-liter model.
