La Scuderia Ferrari 1929 - 1939 by Orisini and Zagari.

Publishing date: 1979
Binding: Hardbound with dust-jacket
Pages: 432
Text: Italian
Edition: First, 1979
Publisher: Editoriale Olimpia

Peerless coverage of the important 1929-1939 period of the Scuderia Ferrari racing team.

Superbly illustrated throughout.

In very good condition, some foxing / spotting to front end papers, spine of dust jacket lightly faded, small repaired tear to dust jacket at top of spine and the usual slight discoloration on the spine of the dust-jacket.

Please note that the dust-jacket has an additional plastic cover which can be easily removed but gives some reflections in the photographs which may look like discolorations but are not.

A very rare book and often considered the holy grail of Ferrari books.

This is the Italian version which is much better and more elaborately illustrated than the, later, English version.

Ferrari Dino SP Maranellos first rear-engined sports prototype by John Godfrey

Ferrari Dino SPs

Publishing date: 1990
Size: 21 x 26 cm or 8 x 10 inches
Pages: 192
Text: English

Imagine, then, the scene in 1961.

The technical advance generated by the great marques throughout the 1950s has blossomed into the early '60s to create a new and exciting period in motor racing.

Ferrari are poised, expectant but uncertain, with their first rear-engined sports-racing car as the new season approaches.

For them, the rear engined era has arrived...

The Ferrari Dino SPs, the first-ever rear-engined sports prototypes from Maranello, went almost straight from the drawing board to some tryly remarkable performances on the world's racing circuits, carrying many records with them.

How this was brought about is the theme of John Godfrey's deeply reserached book; himself a former owner of one of these rare and celebrated machines, he is well qualified to write with authority and warmth an account of a group of cars that were not only remarkalble in themselves, but also had a lasting influence on motor racing history.

Good condition for its age.

1919 was the year in which Ferrari began driving racing cars and Zagato founded his couchworks, and from that moment their paths were to cross on several occasion.

Every time Zagato got his hands on a Ferrari chassis, even without the official blessing of Maranello, he succeeded in building a beautiful car.

Even today these “Ferrari by Zagato” are shrouded in a certain air of mistery – not even the coachworks possessed documentation.

This book has bridged the gap.
