Lot Details
A Collector's Edition of "The Inside Track, Phil Hill, Ferrari's American World Champion",
The Collector's Edition consists of two volumes, each 480 pages, covering all 90 events that Phil Hill photographed between 1950 and 1962 and including his entire archive of over 1150 photographs. The volumes are printed on fine Italian art paper, and are hardbound with cloth-covered slipcases and are presented in a single protective Solander 'clamshell' case.

Volume 1 covers the years 1951 to 1956, from Phil's visit to Pikes Peak as a spectator in 1951, through his early minor-league races around the USA, leading to the start of his international racing career on the Carrera PanAmericana in Mexico in 1952 and at Le Mans in 1953. Volume 2, meanwhile, covers Phil's great years with Ferrari from 1957 to 1962, a magical era for motor sport during which he famously won the Le Mans 24-Hours three times and, of course, the Formula 1 Drivers' World Championship in 1961.

Included in both volumes are many behind the scenes photographs taken at the great circuits of Monaco, Monza, Rouen-les-Essarts and of course Le Mans, and also at such lesser known but wonderfully exotic sports-car-racing venues as Havana, Buenos Aires, Hawaii, Caracas and beyond.

Bonhams is honored to offer this Collector's Edition to the avid follower of Phil Hill or to someone interested in learning more! For more information please see www.philhillbook.com.
