Hello everyone,

Maybe someone (who owns all of these ) can compare the following books: Bugatti Magnum, Bugatti From Milan to Molsheim and Bugatti - Le Pur Sang des Autobiles?

I am talking about the quality of the material, information, interesting facts etc.

Both the Bugatti Magnum and From Milan to Molsheim are overrated, though of course they are nice big coffee table books.
The Magnum has not much more info than the earlier Conway books, just in a bigger print. From Milan to Molsheim looks big, but it is entirely bi-lingual, so effectively it has half the info from what one would expect.

Personally, the book by Jonathan Wood: Bugatti, The Man and The Marque is very good, and I like Serge Bellu's Bugatti, Journal d'une saga

When diving deeper into Bugatti history, there are a lot of books on specialist subjects.


And finally: No decent Bugatti Library can do without "Bugatti Legends" :mrgreen:

Lucky You :)
Quite strange that it was already listed 21.11 and neither google nor ebay showed me one.

Strangely enough have never paid attention to J.Wood's book - should consider getting it :)

Jaap has beaten me as I wanted to reply too that the book by Jonathan Wood is one of the best general history books on Bugatti, escpecially if you compare the price to that of a Magnum or Milan to Molsheim.

The value of the Magnum depends on the language, English and French editions generally have a higher value then German or Italian editions.

Well, a lot of us can not afford the cars, but we can, sometimes, afford the books!
