Atherton, Captain H. Simplified Motoring. The Driving Test And After. , Simpkin Marshall Ltd, 1935.

Cloth. Very Good/Good. 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall FIRST EDITION A charming example of what is becoming an increasingly rare title of motoring nostalgia.Bound in cherry red cloth with gilt lettering to spine Pages are clean and in very good condition and showing some interesting illustrations.Contains an AA - traffic control by light signals - chart in a pouch at the back of the book which explains the correct use of traffic lights! Very eyecatching yellow pictorial dust jacket which is quite comical to say the least showing the typical scenes of a clearly irate driving instructor and a rather bemused pupil sitting in a turn of the century car! Dustjacket is not priceclipped and is protected in a plastic archival sleeve. Overall a very presentable collectors piece of motoring memorabillia from an era when people exercised both courtesy and caution on British roads! (Book ref. 000080 )  £ 25.00
