Here is another book that probably would not have been published 40 years ago not only because of its price but because it is entirely composed of fascinating and superb photographs with long and detailed captions.
To understand the appeal of the book you must understand that there is a large audience out there who will gobble up anything to do with Ferrari. In this instance it is Ferrari in the earlier years and as Maurice Louche owns a number of photographic collections taken by professional photographers, particularly in his native France, he has plenty of Ferrari pictures we have never seen before. He has also enlisted one of the best guides through Ferrari folklore in Jean Sage, the former team manager of Renault in Formula 1 and later a historical consultant to Ferrari. This means that the captions are written in French and English and for the real Ferrari enthusiast Sage has incorporated all the chassis numbers of the racing cars. There are around 1000 photographs in this tome that tips the scales at over a kilo and Maurice Louche for some time now has published his own books so that he has a free hand to pick and choose his photographs. He has done well with this book and it is the kind of book you will keep dipping into regularly.
