By Bernard L. King. Special Edition out of print. A book which beautifully reproduces the rare promotional magazines that Bentley Motors (1931) Limited published in the late 1930s called On the Road. There were 13 issues of the magazine and it was designed for current and prospective owners. It was heavily illustrated and features Derby Bentleys in use by current owners with fashionable backdrops. After an immense amount of research, noted Derby specialist, Bernard King has been able to identify most of the cars. The magazine is very hard to find and very few people have complete sets. It may be noted that the comparable Rolls-Royce Bulletin of the time is rare but is available.
This Bentley book will be of great interest and value to collectors and enthusiasts, particularly when coupled with the identification of the cars and the provision of many tables and indices.
Bernard L. King, a native of Surrey, England, was involved in the travel and airline industries throughout his working life. Now retired, he has been able to indulge his passion tracking down and listing vintage aircraft and Bentley and Rolls-Royce motorcars. A historian rather than a technical expert, he has developed a huge database which has enabled him to self-publish many books, including the Complete Classics series of Rolls-Royce and Bentley books. He is the proud owner of a 1954 Bentley R-type Hooper "Empress".
