ART ARFONS, Fastest Man on Wheels - SIGNED by Art Arfons

KATZ, Frederic

New York: Rutledge Books
First edition
1965
Very Good / Very Good
B4995
First edition. Octavo, pp 127. Red cloth covered hard boards and in the original dust jacket. With numerous b/w illustrations from photographs. Signed and inscribed: “To Evan | Art Arfons”. Arfons held the world land speed record three times between 1964-1965 achieved at Bonneville Salt Flats in his own designed jet propelled vehicle. He was in close and repeated competition for the record with Craig Breedlove during those years.


The book is in Very Good condition with a little wear to the top edge of the boards and a liquid splash mark on the top of the page block. The jacket is also in Very Good condition, panels and spine and bright clean and undamaged but there is a scuff on the front flap where a sticky label has been removed and the lower corner with the pound sterling price has been clipped (the US$ price of $2.75 remains on the top corner of the flap). Uncommon book and decidedly uncommon to be signed by Arfons.
