We have always had the greatest admiration for the Rolls-Royce and Bentley literature which is the particular care of Mr. Millard Buckley, who, aided by his Bentley and a Leica, has every opportunity of securing photographs that do justice to the motor-cars Iron: Derby. Indeed, we may here inflict upon readers the story of how, as schoolboys. we ” won” the coveted Rolls Royce catalogue. Asking for a copy at Conduit Street, the comnaissionaire then engaged, turned us away disgustedly, saying that the charge was 2,6 per copy. Not to be so easily beaten, we went into a telephone box, and explained that we had just sent a boy round for a catalogue and were disappointed that he had returned empty handed, but we were sending him back at once with the
necessary money. A huge envelope arrived next morning covered in stamps, containing our prize . . . All that happened a long time ago, but we have recently had our enthusiasm revived by the really beautiful RollsRoyce and Bentley Bulletins which Mr. Buckley has posted once every three months to owners of these cars. Made up chic fly of views and unique photographs, these bulletins are printing at its finest, and would surely sell quite well in the open market of a station book
stall. As it is, only limited supplies are printed, so we cannot add that readers can receive copies for the asking, but if you have a Rolls-Royce or Bentley owner among your friends or relations ask him to loan you the .set—they will certainly be somewhere on his shelves. Turning the pages you will feel the irresistible appeal of quality, and appreciate how much the Rolls-Royce and the Bentley contribute to British prestige in the far corners of the globe. Personally, we felt all that enthusiasm for the present examples that was once experienced in respect of the first ” Phantom ” and the 44-litre, at the time of the episode recounted above.
