There are most probably a hundred Ferrari books claiming to be complete – this is one of them.  In 1994 it was reasonably fair to say complete.  Main emphasis is on road cars with some nice pics.

Formula One photographs by Jesse Alexander 1954-1966. A lot of Phil Hill pics, naturally. Published by David Bull (Phoenix) now ten years ago. Foreword by Phill Hill.

This is a great collectible. Mailander was arguably one of the greatest photographers of motor racing and the people involved in it. Karl Ludvigsen is exemplary with his production and editing. Another book I got from Ferrari on a visit to the roof of the Lingotto (old Fiat Factory in Turin) when Ferrari boss Agnelli was opening his famous art collection. This copy is presented as a limited edition boxed.
