The Bugattis of Jean De Dobbeleer

Author: Charles Fawcett

Book overview: The book is focused around photos taken at the Jean De Dobbeleer car dealerships in Brussels, Belgium in the period 1957-1961. De Dobbeleer specialized in Bugattis, and it is generally accepted that he bought and sold more Bugattis than any other entity. These photos are historically significant because most have never been available to the public before. The photos are primarily of Bugattis, but a few of other marques are included such as Alfa Romeo and Hispano-Suiza. Whenever possible, descriptions of the cars are provided, and a brief history of the rarest models is also presented. There is a brief biography of De Dobbeleer, including a touching letter from his daughter.

Preview copies of the book were sent to key Bugatti enthusiasts in the U.S. and Europe, and there has been nothing but high praise for it.
