Mr Radley Drives to Vienna

A Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost crossing the Alps - 1913 & 2013


A fascinating tome on the 1913  “K.u.K. Oesterreichische Alpenfahrt”, i.e. the „Austrian Alpine Trials“ in Vienna. Impressive original 1913 photos of Radley's privately entered R-R Silver Ghost were taken again at the same locations hundred years later - with the identical car! The intersting history is explained not only of the original event but of the re-enactments 80 and 100 years later, too. Rather than being but a hommage to the legendary Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost this fabulous comparison of “Old versus New” is a fine result of an immense dedication.

Hardcover, 270 x 280 mm, 152 pages, 108 mono- and colour-illustrations, published 2015.

The Early Days by Davide Bassoli is a compendium on the launch of Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I and Bentley S1. The text is comprehensive and illustrated by fabulously well-captioned photos. An entireyl new approach - and that makes it a unique publication - is the idea to add as a Bonus a large-sized reproduction of a coachbuilder's drawing plus a facsimile of the original press-release by Rolls-Royce (incl. facsimiles of the original company-photos) - and to provide as an additional Bonus that card, which was provided with each new car to give an overview as regards the instruments. All in all a fabulous book, highly recommended

Data: 3-pages container with specially shaped envelopes to keep the book 30x24cm, softback, 95 pages with mono- and colour-illustrations, plus additional boni.
