New English Library. 1970 0450016811 / 9780450016813 Hard Cover Very Good Complete but Tatty 
A very good coffee-table (rather larger than A4) sized 374 page hardback book without inscriptions or other marks. Clean and tight, light rub along bottom edge. Some quite faint foxing to prelims. DJ is awful - bottom edge is just a little rubbed, but the top 3" is chipped, torn, rubbed, creased, you name it. Probably look half-decent in a Brodart. 707 illustrations, 485 in full colour. Ends by telling us what a wonderful invention the Wankel engine is...if only.

Caxton Publishing. 1958 Fifth Edition Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 
Five volumes in hardback, black covers, gold to spines still quite bright. No inscriptions or other marks, virtually unworn, and virtually unused (bought new in instalments for a 16 year old apprentice by his mother, and never used - such a waste!) March 1958 reprint of the fifth edition. Page edges a little age toned. Half a dozen tiny spots of white paint on covers, otherwise could pass for new in a poor light. The fifth volume is the massive data sheet & wiring diagram collection, from the days when you could understand how a car worked - no CAN Bus here! A beautiful set, one for the collection.
