” World-Wide Automotive Year Book,” by H. Wieand Bowman. 144 pp. 6 1/2 in. by 9 in. (Available from F. and E. Stoneham, 6s., or 6s. 6d. post free.)

This is a soft-cover, magazine-like book by the author and the editors of Motor Trend, which contains 16 chapters under headings of different countries, from Argentina to U.S.S.R., dealing with the motoring activities of each of these countries — a refreshingly unusual trend. There are “hand-out” type pictures of a very large number of cars, of great type diversity, and a table of world specifications concludes a book that for potted histories of and Americanised opinions on the great marques will take a lot of beating, especially at 6s. — W. B.

The Dunlop Rubber Co., Ltd., has issued an excellent map by Geographia Ltd. called “Motoring About London,” which gives, very clearly, London’s main thoroughfares and which aims, particularly, at showing the motorist how to avoid the congested central area. The new signposting of through routes is explained and illustrated, road numbers are plainly depicted and this good quality map, which costs 4s. 6d., and covers an area from Chorleywood to Farningham and Colchester Road to Chertsey to a settle of 1 in. =1 Mile, will save much time and anxiety, and be widely appreciated by those who collect good maps.

With this Dunlop map of London and the Michelin Map of Great Britain the motorist will have at his or her disposal information as to the best main routes in these Islands.
