This is a decent book covering the history of the Company and all the motorcycles it produced from 1910 until its demise in 1973.Obviously the history does not go into great detail but its sufficient to get the overall picture and there are plenty of photos in it as well.
I would think that the book is now out of print as copies can command a high price. I was lucky, mine was an ex library book in very good condition (it had only been out three times before being withdrawn) and cost less than £11 including postage.

A must-have title for the BSA enthusiast. 18 Jun. 2001
By A. Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book on the history of BSA motorcycle production. Wright tells the story of how the Company lived and changed through decades of manufacturing. BSA was a very strong brand at one time and even advertised themselves as, "The Most Popular Motorcycle in the World." Wright explains the marketing decisions BSA made through the years and why they moved in the directions they did. Wright is obviously well informed and interested in the subject, which makes his style very classy. The Birmingham Small Arms Company did not always make the best decisions, but even when describing the company's downfalls, Wright treats the subject with respect. His reader is kept interested with "insider" details about the Company and there are enough pictures of BSA bikes to keep any owner satisfied. The book contains detailed information about individual models, so you can learn about bikes you may have only heard of or seen once. All the bikes are in there, from thumper to tripple with clearly reproduced photos. This book is a must-have for your BSA library.
