Book Condition: Near Fine


(no dust jacket; full leather, in slipcase, as issued) [just a touch of wear to the spine extremities, and note that the limitation/signature page at the front of the book seems to have been tipped in rather sloppily, and would probably come loose if you gave it a good tug (so, don't); the slipcase has just a touch of wear along the bottom edge and a couple of faint scuff marks, hence also Near Fine]. (B&W and color photographs) SIGNED on the limitation page (stating this to be #246 of 500 copies) by the author and photographer, and also by Clyde Ware (author of the Introduction) and Phil Hill (author of the Foreword). Elaborately-produced and lavishly-illustrated book about the amazing collection of vintage automobiles assembled by gambling magnate Bill Harrah, founder of Harrah's Hotel and Casino, and open for public visitation in Reno, Nevada. There are three primary sections of the book: (One) "The Operation of Harrah's Automobile Collection," including a biography of Harrah himself, who died in 1978; (Two) "The Great Cars of Harrah's Automobile Collection"; and (Three) "A Tour of Harrah's Automobile Collection"; as well as a complete list of all 1,464 vehicles owned by the Collection at the time of Harrah's death. NOTE that although the limitation page states that the book "includes a photographic portfolio and a lifetime pass to the collection," neither of those things is present with this copy. FURTHER NOTE: pictured with this listing is the slipcase; if you'd like a shot of the book itself, please inquire. AND YET ONE MORE NOTE: Additional shipping charges for this heavy book will apply for non-U.S. customers; please inquire before placing your order. Signed by Collection of Signatures
