“I want to let you know that the William Blew "History of Steeple-chasing" arrived safely in today's post. It is truly everything that I expected and more. The book arrived in good sound condition and all the color plates, which you said, were also in fine condition. I can't thank you enough for the highly professional service you gave to me. I hope that we may work together again in the future. Again, my thanks and very best wishes.”

“ The book arrived promptly and was beautifully wrapped in tissue paper. The outer cardboard packaging was stout and prevented any damage in transit. I am very pleased with my purchase which is to be a present for my Aunt. She will be absolutely delighted with the book and I have no hesitation in recommending this seller. A very positive experience.”

About this title:

 "First published in 1986 this was acknowledged as the definitive work on the Vintage Bentley. Based on a comprehensive collection of over 500 photographs of coachbuilt Bentleys, this authoritative book also gives a full account of the racing history into the early 1930s. Each chapter gives a complete breakdown of chassis and model specifications, revised for this edition with information from the original Works Build Sheets. In The Tables, which form an integral and important part of the work, the author gives details of the cars when new and their subsequent history, where known. This information has been completely rewritten and updated for this new edition, with additional data on the cars when new and a wealth of data on the subsequent histories of individual cars. This information is fully cross-referenced , in a new section with information derived from periodicals nd other sources. Thus "Bentley - The Vintage Years" in its revised edition gives the reader the tools to research any given Bentley. This book remains without doubt the most comprehensive survey of the Vintage Bentley ever published.
