A Christmas present? The Automobile Handbook and Guide

We are offering the last few copies of The Automobile Handbook and Guide at a special price of £20 including postage within the UK.

It is a reproduction of a possibly unique copy of the original brochure dated 1900; it was a joint 2011 project of the Society of Automotive Historians in Britain (SAHB) and the MSMT.

The original brochure is a rare landscape size illustrated treatise on early production motor-cars, dated November 1900. Loaned by a SAHB member, this reprint project has been funded by the Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust.

Having first undergone significant ‘cleaning’ and ‘image sharpening’ by a qualified commercial artist, nothing has been lost of the style and charm of the original publication. The saddle-stitched cover has been printed on 300 gsm textured card, similar in colour and style of the original. The 48-page illustrated text has been printed on 130 gsm gloss art paper to aid image contrast.

If you wish to order a copy, please contact us through the ‘Leave a Comment’ facility at the bottom of this post, and we shall be pleased to arrange payment and delivery with you.
