This book could be subtitled: "Hispoano, Delage, Bugatti, Farman and the others...".
These "others" have very well known, little known, sometimes unexpected names... Or even completely forgotten: Renault, Panhard, Voisin, Peugeot, Delaunay-Belleville... or Mors, Gnome-Rhône, René Fonck, Ballot... or even Delahaye, Talbot, Facel, Véga... then, among the carrosiers, Binder, Kellner, Saoutchik... and so many others...
A list of an unsuspected wealth. To enumerate such names is already quite a program, and this is the one proposed to the reader. This book, written by two lovers of the French automobile of the highest luxury, brings to life a century of automobile history in France, seen through the eyes of the most prestigious. Magnificent period photos, very often unpublished, reproductions of pages from the most sumptuous and artistic catalogues, advertisements taken from luxurious magazines... make us move among real works of art... in a word, live moments of pure happiness. These images, laid out with an elegance and a concern for detail equal to the subject matter, could almost stand on their own. They are however completed by precise and varied comments, by extracts of press of the time, by summary tables, by texts of writers contemporary of the evoked cars, showing that if the car industry was born in France it is also our country which has invented the concept of the car of very great luxury. The dream competes with the real in this evocation of a heritage whose memory deserved not to disappear: this book was conceived with this aim.
A book to look at and to keep, to read and to reread!
