The "Fiat fuoriserie" book series, written by Alessandro Sannia, is a collection of wonderful books with a lot of informations and pictures.
I've got only a few of them, but I'm looking for the others (at first Fiat 1100 and Topolino ones).

Fiat 1100 and Topolino fuoriserie books are out of print.
But I want it! :(
Does somebody know how can I do?

Do You think, it is a good additional for our CB-theme? I cannot read french, so I must be happy with the pictures only ...,

Hi, il fiammingo,

in new/1995 the title was 800;--FF (= 152;--€/2010). So, something more than 100;--€ and add. sending-rate will be a good price (for <700pages/<7.000pics), because You are able to read it in French. For me, without French knowledge, it is a lot of money for only pics ...,
... maybe, I can find it for You in non-french-writing auction-offers in future - there it will be cheaper for the different language-reason ...,
... with greetings, Frank ;)

Does anybody knows if this book contains only (Italian) text that tells the story, or does it also contains photos and 'dry' facts (production figures, designers who worked for the companies, links between the company, timetables,...)

Hi,

does anyone of us have this title http://www.autonetcarbooks.com/encyclop ... 31621.html in his collection? I want to know, if it is a good buy (for 99;--€), to have an overview with the French CB-scene of the past 125 years, without any French acknowledge.

Thank You for Your answers and greetings is sending Frank ;)

Hi Frank,

I haven't bougth that book yet and i think i'll buy it second hand. I had a quick look at it and there are a few errors, there's not much new (for me) in the coachbuilders' descriptions and some pictures were scanned from other books.
I don't have the Beaulieu encyclopedia about coachbuilding so i can't compare. But i'd say it's not worth the 99 euro price tag.

This is my humble opinion,

NicoB

Hi, Nico,

and thank You for Your answer. The 'B. Enc. of CB' as #4 of the Total-Car-Enc. I have in my collection as one of ~1.200 books. So, I am with You: nearly 100;--€ for another similar book with minor news, I would like to add, is not necessary. Maybe, I find it with ebay&Co for <50% of the new-price during the next years ...,

... with weekend-greetings, Frank

My advice would be to have a look first at what's inside before buying it.
The original french book was a huge disappointment for me. And I don't think they changed a lot of things in the translated version.
