Three volumes, all First Editions. Small octavos, pp 272, 273-544, 545-800. Bound in blue leatherette boards and in the original dust jackets, all jackets are un-clipped and priced 12/6. A most comprehensive history of this famous circuit which is best remembered for the Bentley racers in the 1920’s and 1930’s. All three volumes are illustrated throughout with photographs.
Books are all in Near Fine condition, jackets are VG-, bright and unfaded but all are chipped at the top of the spines and worn to corners and volume 2 has a 1” section of the green inks discoloured to the front panel. A pretty set of books and scarce to find them all in jackets.
