Octavo, red cloth & grey boards (hardcover), silver letters, 496 pp. Fine, in a Fine dust jacket. Illustrated. “Pulitzer Prize-winners Paul Ingrassia and Joseph B. White take us into the boardrooms, the executive offices, and the shop floors of the auto business to reconstruct, in riveting detail, how America's premier industry stumbled, fell, and picked itself up again. Bigger-than-life characters -- Lee Iacocca, Henry Ford II, Don Petersen, Roger Smith, Bob Lutz, among many others -- leap off the pages. It is a story propelled by greed, by stubborn pride, and by sheer refusal to face facts, but it is also one full of dedicated, unlikely heroes who struggled to make the Big Three change before it was too late, and triumphantly succeeded... “

10 Kimes, Beverly Rae; Editor. Packard: A History of the Motor Car and the Company. [An Automobile Quarterly Library Series Book].
Automobile Quarterly Publications, (1978). Third Printing. 
Royal, oblong octavo; navy blue leatherette (hardcover), silver letters and decorations to upper cover & spine, 828 pp. Illustrated. Near-Fine, with light edgewear; in a Fine, mylar protected dust jacket. From dust jacket. Only the legendary Packard could command a book of such scope and expense. This monumental work has required ten years of research, documentation and photography. It represents many more decades of collecting Packard automobiles, facts, photographs, technical data and information to record for all time every aspect, every event, every model, every achievement of the Packard motor car and the men who made its name and emblem an international byword for taste and refinement in automobile design and engineering. Over three years were spent in intensive writing, checking, cross-checking, rewriting, coordinating, editing, and winnowing thousands of rare and unpublished historic photographs. It would not be an exaggeration to state that the accumulated years of research represented here in this great volume is more than the equal of the Packard company's lifetime. PAckard's beginnings are the beginnings of America's full-throttle race into the automobile age. Its coursing through more than half a century aptly reflects a considerable portion of Twentieth Century Americana. The chronicling of this dynamic company's history perhaps best expresses the genius and the adventure of American enterprise.
