Good day everyone,

Have recently got the book "The Race Bugatti missed" and would like to ask you - what other good books are there on the subject of the pre-WWI racing?
Do You have any recommendations?

You can read:

Histoire Du Grand Prix 1906-1914

By TASO Mathieson
published: 1965
Language: French
400 pages

See: http://www.special-classics.com/books-author.htm

There are lots of beautiful photographs, which were found by publisher (and friend of mine) Gies Pluim in Paris shortly after the war.

Histoire Mondiale de la Course Automobile Tome 1 1894-1914. by Jean-Paul Delsaux - maybe someone here has one to sell? Don't want to buy it new for the full price as my french is basic and the reading will be with a dictionary :)
