First edition of this scarce photographic account of the 1937 Grand Priz season, which was won convincingly by Rudolf Caracciola driving the supercharged Mercedes-Benz W125, designed using generous state subsidies from the Nazi German government. First, second, third and fourth place all went to Mercedes-Benz drivers, including Manfred von Brauchitsch, who won the Monaco Grand Prix and came second overall. Quite scarce, with five copies only traced in British and Irish institutional libraries, and not common in the dust jacket.

Quarto. Original grey cloth, spine lettered in red. With the dust jacket. Photographic frontispiece, vignette title page, and profuse photographs throughout. Later, related newspaper cutting laid in. Spine rolled, free endpapers tanned, light toning. A very good copy in the slightly and marked rubbed dust jacket with a few discreet portions of old tape repair to verso at joint-ends.
