    Does anyone have this book in his collection: "La Leggenda Ferrari Nelle Pagine de La Gazetta dello Sport"?

    Is it worth buying?

    Period reads and in this case reprints are precious reading, they can help immensely in documenting a car by way of articles written DURING it's lifespan not decades later. I have used this as one of my sources for my articles for decades. It gives an undistorted perspective from which to work.

    New 2021 Yearbook of the Ferrari Club Austria, exceptional quality and content, notably a perfect report about 50 years of Fiorano with lots of interesting history and details.
    Really well done, highly recommended.

    This book remains a total mystery. There is absolutely no information available at the Web, none of the main book dealers ever heard of it, there hasn't been any copy offered at the common online plattforms, and even Blurb doesn't have it although it appears to have been produced there.

    I think, they just produced three copies: one copy for each of the two authors respectively and one for @Marcel Massini, who can feel very honoured :)

    I do not have a copy and have not seen the book. I am actually seeking one (a copy).
    Seems two Frenchmen made this BB book and they must have presented it during Retromobile in Paris (I wasn't there).
    I do not know more than that. If anybody finds the book and more information where to get it please inform the fchatters. Tx.

    If David Williams is involved, at a minimum, it should look nice. I rate his recent work with FCA's Prancing Horse magazine highly.

    They are! I didn’t know there was such a detailed book about the Trieste-Opicina. I saw it online and bought it immediately.

    It's 20 years young and still much better than many other recent books in every way.
    Good job Marcel ;-)

    Hello, I've got this one. They printed 365 copies of it and it was never due to be put on sale.
    The author owns a 365 BB and the car was showcased this year at Retromobile for the 50th (+1 ... as Retromobile was cancelled last year) birthday of the model.
    As far as I understood the book was only given there for friends and guest.
    But if you search for the author (Edouard Bernard) on Facebook and kindly ask him, I'm sure he will be happy to sell you some remaining copies.

    Hello Yan-Alexandre, merci beaucoup for the precious information! Now, I know a little bit more. Interesting to know the background. Unfortunately, there are more than 100 Edouard Bernards at Facebook! But I am sure, one day, a copy will appear at the well-known channels. I will keep an eye on it ;)

    Surely Mr. Bernard can be located and contacted somehow? NOT via FB I mean.
    Any leads?
