Large illustrated volume in stiff paper covers; 13 ¾ x 10 inches; 16 pp. Five fold-out color illustrations depict the inner-workings of a contemporary automobile, with different parts numbered for reference in a listing on an opposing page.

Four other similarly devised fold-outs reveal the mechanical components in closer detail. All fold-out components are present, and in bright, clean condition. Cover photographs of a goggled race car driver by Maurice Beck. Two small initials (ink) on front cover; overall very good condition. Text on first page states "the object of this book [is] to give our friends and readers the opportunity of visualizing the interior economy of the motor car, and...the amazingly delicate, yet accurate, mechanism that makes motoring worth while to-day." A most attractive and engaging volume, assembled with considerable detail and imagination. .
