By Ignacio Gonzalez Miranda on January 13, 2002
This book has everything you need to increase your knowledge in this classic make. It has the history of both Daimler and Benz, the birth of "Mercedes" name, the melting of the two makes in 1926 and much more. It's divided in two books displayed in a nice case. First time I saw the book over the net I was nicely surprised about the good value it is. 700 pages at an excellent price. The series are treated superficially but the pictures make worth the bucks spent. If you want in-depth analisis about a model in particular you'll need new books but there's no question about buying this one to start your apprenticeship.

Beautiful photographs and tons of information on early and largely unknown models of the past. However, if you expect to find a particular model, you may be disappointed. Selected models are highlighted for each chronological era. Amazingly, the flagship model of present day Mercedes-Benz, the S600 , is conspicuously absent, as are all of the S Class models. I had expected coverage of the V-12 engine, in particular. However, the presentation in three languages, with magnificent pictorials, is quite impressive, and well worth the cost.

This is primarily a collection of magnificent photographs on virtually every significant Mercedes-Benz model right from the beginning. While the text is indeed short dn concise, it is in the photography and quality of production that these books earn their marks. The text is in three languages (English, French and German) and is accurate but short on technicality. If one is looking for information on restoring or documenting vintage automobiles, this is not the book for you. But if you like great photography of automobiles, you will appreciate this book.
Incidentally, the same set of authors/photographers have also produced an equally impressive volume on Ferraris. Also worth a look.

If you are a Mercedes-Benz fan, you will love this book! It is packed with full-color photos of just about every Daimler and Mercedes model that was ever built, including the Formula One and other racing cars. The photos are of a very high standard, and include shots from different angles of the various models, as well as their interiors.
Of particular interest, is the complete history of Mercedes (Daimler included), in the front of the book. All text is presented in English, French and German.
This is a high quality book that will look good on even the most sophisticated coffee table. It will also testify to the good taste of its owner!

This is a museum in a book, I am still wandering around the beautiful photographs and lovingly written text ( in three languages), finding out more about the history of the automobile and the place of Daimler Benz. I recommend this book to anyone who loves cars and loves history. It is an inspiring and beautiful way to see how the cars of today have evolved. What a bargain!

If your a Mercedes owner as I am or just a classic car buff, you'll appreciate this book. The photographs are beautiful and plentiful. There are rare and one-of-a-kind models pictured in this book that I've never heard of or seen before. This is a definte "must have" book. The quality of paper used is even impressive.

This book is a great resource if you just want more information on the marque, but a bit lacking if you want more in depth information on the various models covered in the book, and while it does have great pictures, I wish there were more.
