Russian Motor Vehicles
A detailed look at the motor vehicle industry in Russia prior to the end of World War I, with information on steam vehicles, electric vehicles, motor cycles and military vehicles.
The book's author spent much time in the former USSR researching the material within this volume, which to his knowledge is the most comprehensive account of the subject ever produced. The archives of the Polytechnical Museum in Moscow were consulted in depth, and a large numbers of Russian books in the author`s possesion have also been perused to achieve a reliable report.
Featuring 90 illustrations and photographs, many extremely rare, this is an important and fascinating look at a little-known area of automotive history.
