This richly illustrated photographic essay captures the human drama and technical ingenuity that have characterized Grand Prix racing ever since the first event in 1906. Many of these photographs have never been published before, including wonderful images from early glass-plate negatives. The book graphically tells the story of the iconic cars that changed the sport over the past 100 years and the men who raced them- the greatest drivers including Felice Nazzaro, Tazio Nuvolari, Rudi Caracciola, Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, and many more. Dramatic and beautiful photographs of the key drivers, entrants, cars, and venues combine with highly informative captions to present a vivid and often intimate picture of the first century of Grand Prix racing.

Just like the title states, Grand Prix! Rare Images of the First 100 Years is well presented. Probably based on available photos, 39% is pre-WW II coverage with 61% coverage from 1946. One interesting contradiction is on the page 61 photo caption, last sentence, vs. the caption on page 67. Would be interesting to have one or two photos showing the contrast between front engine and rear engine GP cars, especially in 1959-1960. I know from experience, I was at Monaco and Zandfoort in 1960.
