What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

Written by Mike Hawthorn (1929-1959), the UK's first Formula One World Champion, achieving the title in 1958; he also won the 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans, which saw the deadliest motor racing accident of all time. Hawthorn retired after his Formula One win, still scarred by his role in the crash, as well as the death of his friend Peter Collins during the 1958 German Grand Prix; he died in a road accident three months after his retirement.

Contains thirty one illustrations across eight plates.

In the publisher's original binding, lacking original dust wrapper.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding, without a dust wrapper. Externally very smart, very minor shelf wear to extremities and a water stain to the back board. Front endpaper clipped. Internally firmly bound, pages bright and clean, the odd spot to the edges.
