Pre War Austin 7 Club, in collaboration with Bryan Purves have commissioned a reprint of the above book.  

It is available from the Club Book Shop at £70 per copy.  UK P & P is £10 or alternatively can deliver to  750 Beaulieu Rally or Bristol A7 Club Rally at Atwell Wilson museum.

That will upset the '£200' brigade on ebay. Good. Well done Graham.

Can I ask is it an updated version with some new material?
or a straight reprint?

It is basically as before.  The only alteration to the content is the removal of the 1927 Cox Sports Tourer on P128 this being replaced by an RF Fabric Saloon.

Ah, the Cox...


I thought it WAS going to be revised... would it have made a difference in price if it had been?
Still very positive though to have it made more economic; and presumably there is an erratum list somewhere.

As did I- is this still planned ? 

If not my old 2004 edition (with many additions to the Austin Seven Publications 1922-41, less 1935) will have to be sufficient. 

Cheers, Tony.

We did consider revising the book, but unfortunately it was  not an economically viable proposition and the final cost of the book would have been too high.

Why is it so expensive anyway?

I have commissioned book printing in the past and, whilst modern digital printing offsets old lytho set up charges to a large extent, compared to 'Jamie's cook up some dross in 2 minutes' cook book it will be an extremely short print run which will be reflected in cost (not forgetting the high res scanning).

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think!
