An extensive history on Morris cars, from 1913 to 1930.
In 1913, the owner, William Morris, opened his first factory at the former Oxford Military College in Oxford. This was where his first car, the two-seat Morris Oxford 'Bullnose', was made.
Morris has original begun his career as a bicycle manufacturer, before moving on to his planning and designing of light cars.
During the years covered in this work, Morris Motors produced nine car models, from the Morris Oxford Bullnose, to the Morris Oxford Six, Sixteen, and Twenty.
Written by Philip A. J. Garnons-Williams. This is his only known work.

Pages are bright and clean, with only a couple of light spots, mostly due to the spots to the fore edge.
