For collectors of early technical manuals on automobiles and other related vehicles, we present the wonderfully illustrated textbook "Automotive Construction and Operation".

Specially written for students in automotive schools and universities, automobile owners, salesmen, and service station mechanics. 465 pages, with 425 illustrations, photographs, diagrams and other line drawings.

The mentions of electric cars are interesting, not only because they were being considered so early on in the automobile industry.
