This book was the first major publication in English on the history and the cars of BMW. The text is quite comprehensive but the value of this book is in the more than 1000 black/white images sourced from BMW’s archives and other places. It also has a lot of information on cars that used the famous BMW 328 engine and there are 49 colour portrait photos of pristine examples of BMW cars. Large wall posters of the cars are available separately. Now a collector’s item, the price is AUD$80 plus postage; the wall posters are AUD$20 each plus postage.
