Sports Publishing LLC 2003 1582617236 / 9781582617237 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Signed by Bobby Allison. CD is unopened like new. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful rare collectors grade copy of this book. When traveling amongst the racing circles of drivers and fans alike, the mere mention of Bobby Allison causes excitement. And, rightfully so, too. He's not only one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest Drivers, the 1983 Winston Cup Series champion and tied (so they say) for third on the all-time win list at 84 victories--he is a true legend of the sport. His accomplishments on the track are still heralded and referred to as reference points in many record books. Bobby is a self-made legend--not much ever was handed to him that he didn't earn through talent and determination. Few will doubt or offer debate that, too. He has so many stories to tell that sharing them at only racing banquets, among friends and the fornutate fans who happen to run into him just doesn't seem fair. This book is a collection of his favorite stories and happenings that occurred during his illustrious career. And, the best part about all these stories is they are all told in his own words. When Bobby ! Allison tells a story, people stop and listen. Some of Bobby Allison's favorite stories of his life and times - on and off the various tracks he thrilled so many fans - is now available for you to enjoy. If you're looking for a smile or laugh from a true racing legend, then this book is for you. ; Illustrated; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 200 pages; Signed by Biographee

The Bystander Fragments from France, Vol 5, Bairnsfather, Captain Bruce
19 Bairnsfather, Captain Bruce The Bystander Fragments from France, Vol 5
London, England The Bystander c 1917 First Edition; First Impression paperback Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Author 
Color inset on front cover. Cover is not detached from staples but both front and back are there. Contents clean with great illustrations. Bruce Bairnsfather, the son of Thomas Bairnsfather and Amelia Every, was born in Muree, India, in 1888. Bruce's father was a Lieutenant in the Bengal Infantry. After attending schools in India and Stratford-upon-Avon, Bruce joined the British Army. Bairnsfather found army life boring and left the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and enrolled as an art student at the Hassall School of Art. After completing his training he produced advertising posters for products such as Lipton Tea, Players's Tobacco and Flowers Beer. On the outbreak of the First World War Bairnsfather rejoined the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and within a couple of weeks had been promoted to the rank of lieutenant. After the Battle of Mons the British Army was desperately short of trained soldiers and Bairnsfather was quickly rushed to the Western Front where he served with people such as Captain Bernard Montgomery and Lieutenant A. A. Milne. Bairnsfather, who was put in charge of a Maxim Machine-Gun section, was shocked by trench-life and even refused to take leave, fearing that once he left, he would find it too difficult to return. During the Christmas of 1914, Bairnsfather came close to being court-martialed after joining German soldiers in what later became known as the Christmas Truce. While on the Western Front, Bairnsfather drew pictures of trench life and in 1915 The Bystander magazine began publishing his drawings. Bairnsfather's work was extremely popular with the soldiers in the trenches and this helped sales of the magazine. This book is protected by an archival quality sleeve to maintain present condition.
