De Dion_bouton_illustrated_guide
In the first few years of the 20th century the level of technical progress in the construction of motor cars was remarkable, as evidenced by the output from De Dion Bouton's Puteaux works. In September 1899 the company produced its first rear-engined, four-wheeled, twin-speed vehicle with a single cylinder engine, an unsprung back axle, no rear brakes, and very limited accommodation. Between 1899 and 1904 De Dion Bouton produced 16 Types of passenger vehicle in single and twin cylinder configuration. By 1904 the company was manufacturing fully sprung vehicles capable of carrying limousine coachwork and a full complement of passengers in comfort over long distances.  With the help of more than 50 line drawings and 150 colour photographs, this book sets out to trace the course of vehicle development, summarises the essential technical information, and clearly identifies the characteristics of each Type. De Dion Bouton: An Illustrated Guide to Type & Specification 1899-1904 will be of interest to all veteran car enthusiasts with the appetite to learn more about the vehicles produced at the turn of the century by the world's largest engine manufacturer.
