Great photos and informative captions that provide a insightful view of the era. The paper and printing quality is not great, but it is a great value.

This is the fourth of Paul Parker's "In Camera" books that I've head the pleasure of reading and it is as excellent as the others. Although the photos are wonderful, what sets these books apart from many other racing picture books are Parker's insightful captions. You wouldn't think that photo captions could be exciting or funny, but Parker really brings the drivers, cars and times to life in a very few words.

Unfortunately, this title seems to have had a very spotty print run. The first copy I purchased (from another source) had a broken binding and pages that weren't cut cleanly. The second copy I purchased (this time from Amazon) had ink smeared over one of the few color pages. The third copy (exchanged by Amazon for the returned second copy) seems fine. I haven't encountered these quality control problems with the other books in the series. Do yourself a favor and check your copy as soon as it arrives.

But, with that aside, this is a wonderful book!

Book loaded with before unpublished photos of sports car racing in the 1950s. I would recommend this book to any racing enthusiast.
