“Three-Pointed Star”, David Scott-Moncrieff’s story of Benz, Mercedes and Mercedes-Benz, which Cassell published in 1955, has been issued in a revised edition by Gentry Books Ltd., 16 Regency Street, London SW1, at £14.95. Many new pictures from the Daimler-Benz archives have been included in the latest edition, which takes the history of Mercedes and Benz to the present day, although the story tails off badly before reaching 1979. Commercial vehicles are not included and if it is racing history and technicalities you want, go instead for the great Ludvigsen Mercedes book. Scott-Moncrieff covers both racing and passenger cars in this 435 9½” 6½” book, which towards the end becomes superficial. A pity, though, that Bunty has not troubled to correct his original error about the Chittys and the Higham Special! It makes one wonder how much revision has been done! The long piece about the pre-war supercharged Mercedes Benz sports cars, from 33/180 to 38/250SSKL, by R. H. Johnson, has again been reproduced from Motor Sport, but we can provide a photostat of this classic article for rather less than the price of the book! And why has acknowledgement of the revision done by Peter Hull to the original text in 1966 been deleted?
