Book Description

Practical Motorist – Volume 9 (1938) edited by F. J. Camm. Published by George Newnes. Fifteen issues of this weekly magazine bound in cloth boards, all but one issue complete with covers. Issues are: 211–218 ~ May 21st to July 9th (No. 211 lacking covers), 222–225 ~ August 6th to August 27th, 231–232 ~ October 8th and October 15th (No. 232 being the Show Number), 234 ~ October 29th. Hardback – cloth binding with gilt title to spine. Size: 11.5 x 8.5 inches approx. (295mm x 218mm). Binding showing some light wear and rubbing, especially to spine ends and corner tips; dusty. Occasional adverts cut out; a previous owner’s name and address written in ink to front free endpaper; a few instances of tears to pages; page tanning due to age and paper stock; first magazine lacks covers; one page has a couple of notes/ink blot and this has soaked through to a couple of subsequent pages. Nonetheless, on the whole remains a nicely preserved example of this scarce motoring magazine.
