Content: The Phantom II Continental is one of the aristocrats of
automobiles, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Mercedes SSKs, Bugatti T50s
and Duesenberg Model Js. The history of every Phantom II Continental is
described in these pages, supported by over 2,000 illustrations. The cars are
shown at different periods of their lives: when new in the 1930s, in early
post-war days, sometimes in derelict state and, fortunately more often, in
glorious restored condition.

Leatherbound Edition: A full dark green New Zealand goatskin leather two-volume edition
with raised spine bands in a hand made cloth slipcase, richly embossed by Dalton Watson Fine Books. The slipcase and two volumes
will be further presented in a custom-made protective Solander box.
Some further details on the production are as follows. The
goatskin is picked from hides arriving from New Zealand and only the best 20%
is used for book binding. The hides are tanned in France before being shipped
to the binder's agents. The Solander box was first created by Dr. Solander who
traveled with Captain Cook recording the flora and fauna on his voyage and
used the box for samples and drawings. The hand-made marble end papers are made by Jemma Lewis in her workshop in Chippenham, Wiltshire. She is using
skills and techniques developed in England in Victorian times giving her papers
a distinctly English flavour. The binding is by Ludlow Bookbinders in
A special author-signed dedication page is bound into each
of these 20 books.
