Title: The Practical Motorists Encyclopaedia
Author: F.J. Camm
Publisher: George Newnes Limited
Publication Year: 1941
Pages: 376 plus two pages of adverts for other books.
Size: 13.7 cm x 20.1 cm
This book has navy blue cloth boards with embossed lettering on the spine and front board. The spine is slightly faded and there are a few very faint fade marks on the front board. The corners of the boards are a little worn and bent in and the top of the spine is a little worn as well.
The pages are clean and all are present, the spine is a little cracked in places but the binding is secure. As an encyclopaedia the entries are in alphabetical order and cover a very wide range of mechanical topics.
This book would make a very unusual gift for a father or grandfather, or anyone who likes vintage cars. Please be aware that this is NOT a proper manual on mechanics, and since it dates from 1941 it will not mention airbags, anti-lock brakes, cruise control etc etc.
