First Edition. This is from the dustwrapper: "THE SKODA and Laurin & Klement history begins far back into the last century. The Skoda heavy industrial and armaments complex was founded in 1859; and the Laurin & Klement company began to make bicycles in 1895, then motorcycles, expanding into motor car manufacture in 1905. The skills and diligence of the directors and the workforce kept these firms in existence - indeed prosperous - even in the most difficult times. Laurin & Klement automobiles were famous for their build quality and excellent design, winning many international sporting events. In 1925 when Skoda took over Laurin & Klement, Skoda already made cars under licence, such as the Skoda-Hispano-Suiza which proved to be made better than the original French vehicle. Skoda inherited the Laurin & Klement manufacturing tradition and has continued it successfully to the present day. Skoda cars were - and are - designed to provide maximum service: long lasting, rugged, well conceived vehicles which have gained laurels in countles cross country rallies and proved their stamina in spectacular long distance journeys across continents, through deserts, pampas and rocky mountains. In the RAC Rally Skoda won its class 18 times in 20 years. No other manufacturer has achieved such consistent results. This fine reputation led to many manufacturers vying to become Skoda's partners after the opening of the eastern European markets in 1989. With more than 200 photographs, many never before published, and a text provided by the only authors qualified to tell the story, this book is a timely reminder - with the Iron Curtain torn aside - of the engineering intelligence and achievements of a truly great company." 192 pages, 8 X 11 inches. Very good book in a very good dustwraapper with some light edge creasing and a few small scuffs. N° de ref. de la librería 003485

This history of Skoda cars looks at the development of the motorized transport industry in Bohemia, world market production and rallying success. The Cold War years may have dimmed the reputation of Skoda, but the sales of cars exceeded those of Jaguar and Mitsubishi in the 1980s in Britain.
