Title: Alfa Romeo, Tutte Le Vetture Dal 1910/ All cars from1910 Author: Lugi Fusi ASIN: B001VGGOP2 Year of publication: 1978 Emmeti Grafica Language: Italian/English quality of book: hardback Classification: brand biography Concerns: technical information on all Alfa Romeo's from 1910 until 1978 Digital available: yes Personnel grade from 1to10: 9 Your meaning on the book: Actually I should have graded it a 10, because there is no better bible on Alfa's than this book. but I gave it a 9 for two reasons, it's not updated from 1978, and the picture, although quite original, are in black & white newspaper quality. This book is becoming rare and the price for this book second hand can be quite high. I just had a look at Amazon and found the cheapest version I ever found for £300. If you want to buy this book and you don't speak Italian, make sure you got the version with both languages.

Personally I am happy to give it 10/10 since I have little interest in cars after the 1970's. I'll add a few lines if I may. It looks like all of the pictures and drawings are contemporary, no modern stuff. I believe Fusi worked for Alfa, so had access to all this stuff. Information on each car gives a page of data, a history, varied photographs and drawings. It seems like all good Alfa books command premiums.
