It took me 3 years before I laid my hand on this book and I'm very happy to see that I'm the first to review this book. This LaSalle book really provides an excellent overview of the LaSalle history. Published under the auspicien of the Cadillac-LaSalle Club Museum it has 422 pages, text is sparse, but pictures are lavish. Beautiful photos from restored examples and best of all great pictures from sales brochures, company records, details of production, you name it and it's in there. There have not been a lot of publications on this marque but this one makes up for the lack of that. Which leaves me with one question: hey guys, I can't wait untill you do this on Cadillac itself! I will buy it at any cost.

Large hard cover book with lots of facts, numbers, pictures, and information about the LaSalle. Great information for anyone that owns a LaSalle.

When word of this book's impending publication began making the rounds, I knew the author's reputations as LaSalle authorities of the highest esteem assured it would be the long-awaited definitive single-volume history of this enigmatic car. Having a carefully restored example of one of the last model year's production parked in my garage, lovingly brought back to show condition by my late father and myself from a disassembled, neglected, classic basket-case derelict over the course of two years, made it especially meaningful to me as a life-long LaSalle junkie. I rationalized the additional expense involved in ordering the numbered Collector Edition, which was limited to 365 copies, and eagerly anticipated its arrival.

The book is large, heavy, produced from the finest materials, and initially most impressive. It is logically laid out in model year chapters. The quality of the printing and photo reproduction are top-notch; heavy coated paper being used throughout, which assures the best possible results in reproducing both black and white and color illustrations. The reproduction of original print ads, many of them in partial color, are accurate and stunning. Almost all of the historical photographs are reproduced with excellent results. However, some of the modern era color photos of individual cars are not as sharp. This is probably due to their being smallish prints provided by their owners that were not taken by professionals. The large format of the book allowed for the enlargement of the photo from the original provided, and this often resulted in a noticeable degradation in image sharpness. While an imperfect photo is better than no photo at all, this has unfortunately happened in more than just a few instances.
