It is a highly detailed, technically precise 'bible', both in text and illustration, of the motor car.

This is an exceptionally rare set, both as a title but also in having both volumes, the second published the year after the first. Volume I of this set is the revised second edition and given the set is uniformly bound and uniformly aged one assumes purchased together, probably making vol. II the first printing.
