The Ford Book of Competition Motoring

This is a very nice 9.25 inch by 6 inch 107 page book published in 1965 by Stanley Paul & Co., 178-202 Great Portland Street, London, W1. Copyright by Ford Motor company, and edited by Jim Clark and Alan Brinton, it contains 13 chapters of first person racing experiences, usually using Ford cars:

Of particular interest are the chapters by Jim Clark (of course), Alan Mann and Sir John Whitmore. Lots of black and white images from motor racing journalists/photographers and from Ford Motor Company files are included, and there is even a selection of 3 kodachrome images of Jim Clark, that almost have a hand-tinted quality, one of him driving Cortina-Lotus BJH 417B in 1964.

No ISBN number is listed. Long out of print, and seemingly very hard to find, this book can only be obtained from used book dealers, or from collectors.
