My Thousand and One Cars,by Gabriel Voisin. Reference Edition. Translated and annotated by D.R.A. WinstoneThis is the first English edition of the second volume of Gabriel Voisin’s autobiography, which was published in France in 1962 asMes Mille et Une Voitures.As its title implies,My 1001 Carsis the companion memoir of the period from 1917 to the sixties, during which Voisin turned his attention to the automobile – initially, with the distinctive grandes routières of the Vintage years and the famously exotic art déco creations of the thirties, through to the various iterations of the minimalist post-war Biscooter.Although a seminal work for anyone interested in the marque, or in French engineering over this period, the book was written when Voisin was in his eighties, and references inadequately explained and hard to follow, especially at a distance of 50 years.This reference edition sets the record straight by correcting the text, and by comprehensively annotating the original with suplementary information to illuminate what Voisin intended. Illustrated with more than 150 period photographs, many of which have never before been published.Product DetailsYear: 2012Publisher: FaustrollFormat: Hardcover with dust jacketLanguage: English
