From the forgotten Aberdale, of Llwynypia, Wales, to the ingeniously eccentric Wooler, of north-west London, here is alphabetical coverage in no less than 608 pages of British motorcycle makes of the period 1945-65, among them great names such as AJS, BSA, Matchless, Norton, Royal Enfield, Triumph and Vincent.  The 1500-plus illustrations are accompanied by generous and informative captions which help to convey the strengths, weaknesses and character of the machines, as well as providing technical insights.
