1932 24 Hours of Le Mans Posters and Memorabilia
Vintage 1932 photo of the number 5 Bentley C Blower of Jean Trévoux and "Mary" and the number 6 Talbot AV105 of Hon. Brian E. "Bug" Lewis (Lord Essendon) and Tim Rose-Richards.
Please note that this is VINTAGE photo, NOT a reproduction of ANY kind!
Unfortunately, the number 5 Bentley was the very first car to drop out of the race due to an accident in the very first lap.
The number 6 Talbot would go on to finish 3rd overall with 2441 KM to its name.
The photo shows the cars in the (rudimentary!) pits before the race.
Dimensions: approximately 7 x 5 inches or 17 x 12.5 cm.
It is in very good condition but it does of course show its age.
The race was won by Raymond Sommer and Luigi Chinetti in their Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 LM with a total of 2954 km to their name.
For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1932.

Vintage 1932 ACO Yearbook.
A GREAT find!
Again a very rare find as these guides hardly ever survived.
Great Art Deco material with countless ads (amongst others by Geo Ham who also drew the front cover) and a great travel guide to the Western part of France.
This is museum material!

Vintage 1949 Le Mans 24 Hours by Roger Labric and Geo Ham.
This book, issued in 1949 by the A.C.O. (organizing body of the 24 Heures du Mans), if often considered as THE prized possession for serious Le Mans collectors.
This is one of the VERY few surviving NUMBERED copies!
As a matter of fact, this number 528 of the 1000 numbered copies that were issued.
VERY scarce as in our 15+ years of trading Le Mans memorabilia, this is the very first one we ever managed to source!
We are very proud to be able to offer for sale this book which survives in excellent condition for this book despite its slightly weak binding.
Being a BIG book, some 25 x 32 cm or 10 x 13 inches and 471 pages (it is some 6 cm or 2.5 inches thick!) it is a very detailed account of the 24 Hours races as held in the pre WW2 era (1923 - 1939) including stats and reports on the drivers with countless illustrations and portraits by the fantastic artist, Geo Ham (Georges Hamel).
Please note that this numbered edition is actually THICKER than the "regular" version despite having the exact same contents and same number of pages.
Very, VERY scarce and an absolute "must have" for the endearing Le Mans collector!
Only 1 available of course !
