This is he latest edition from a great series of books on motor sport in years past.

As with the others published previous, this has very good use of images married with informative, extended captions making it easy to browse or delve as you wish. However long you devote to it, you will learn something each time.

3.0 out of 5 stars FROM A MODELER'S REFERENCE POINT
Having bought the 1960-69 book in this series, I was quite disapointed. {5* review for that}. I model slot car's and scenery and bought this book as a picture reference book. In that respect, I'm only giving it 3 star's. Far too many b&w photo's for my use.
An extreamly interesting book to read for fact's and photo content. Just not what I needed.

This review is from: Sports Car Racing in Camera, 1950-59 (Hardcover)
This is he latest edition from a great series of books on motor sport in years past.

As with the others published previous, this has very good use of images married with informative, extended captions making it easy to browse or delve as you wish. However long you devote to it, you will learn something each time.

Background details from a clearly knowledgeable and enthusiastic author bring the machines, personalities and period to life. Highly recommended and a welcome addition to the series. (The exception to the otherwise unblemished standard is one on the BTCC.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking book for anyone interested in motor racing from this era., 9 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Sports Car Racing in Camera, 1950-59 (Hardcover)
The title, whilst accurately describing the book, doesn't do it justice. This is not just another collection of photos of cars from the fifties, it is a collection of top quality photos from this era supplemented by a very interesting and detailed text. This sets the standard that other books of this type should aspire to.

This review is from: Sports Car Racing in Camera, 1950-59 (Hardcover)
A great book. Being of the age in the early 60's when I saw some of these cars in NZ when they were outdated in Europe & America. The book has great clear photos, especially the previously unpublished ones .I really appreciate the effort the author has made to name others in the photos (which appear in later years in other books). I liked his following book with similar title covering 1960-69 years. Both are now the favourites in my collection .

Annual review of golden era of motorsport with lots of fantastic , large ,high quality photographs ( also rare colour shots I have never seen before) and informative ,competent text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sportscar Racing 1950 - 1959, 18 Jan. 2011
By 
This review is from: Sports Car Racing in Camera, 1950-59 (Hardcover)
This book is very good at reviewing the photographic history/recording pictorial reference of Sportscar Racing in the 1950's. It also complements the other books by Paul Parker for 1960-69 and 1970-79.

These are possibly essential read for those interested in both photographic images and benefit of the annual recording of Sportscar Racing through the years of each decade.

This review is from: Sports Car Racing in Camera, 1950-59 (Hardcover)
The third in this series follows the same format as the previous two,a veried number of photos and captions in yearly order.A starting summary of each year and table of results at the end of each year.This works well.In this edition some good early colour photos mixed in with the black and white ones.
A good edition if you have the previous two,or if your interests are of this period of sportscar racing.

This review is from: Sports Car Racing in Camera, 1950-59 (Hardcover)
I have a copy of the esteemed 'Time and Two Seats' which has a limited amount of photographs to accompany the text, Paul Parker's volume makes a wonderful record of truly great motor sport history, as do the accompanying other books in this series.
