Rolls-Royce, book Twenty Silver Ghost The Incomparable Pre-World War I Motorcar 1907-1914, drawings illustrations and design by Melbourne Brindle, text by Phil May and introduction by Julien Levy.

Rolls-Royce Ltd. was an English company in the automotive and aeronautical sector active with this company name until 1973, when the English government, then owner of the entire British automotive sector, decided to divide the automotive, thriving and driving activities the entire group, from the aeronautical ones, in crisis due to the development of the RB211 jet engine; thus the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars for the automotive sector were born, while Rolls-Royce Ltd. would continue to produce aeronautical engines. Rolls-Royce Ltd was officially founded on 15 March 1906, but finds its foundations in the agreement reached on 4 May 1904 by the aristocrat Charles Rolls and the engineer Sir. Henry Royce. The meeting organized in Manchester by Enerst Claremont, Royce's partner in Royce Ltd, led to the agreement that Charles S. Rolls would handle the sales of the automobiles designed and built by Henry Royce. An agreement which soon led to the creation of the company which is still today synonymous with quality and reliability, principles on which the British car manufacturer has always been based and which derive from Sir's spasmodic and constant search for perfection. Henry Royce.
Ewart Melbourne Brindle (1904-1995), automobile collector, was an Australian painter and illustrator with an American passport and known for his automotive illustrations as well as World War II themed advertisements and posters, magazine illustrations and postage stamps and postcards for the US Postal Service. In 1918 the Brindle family moved to the United States in San Francisco and after a short school career and various jobs, Martin Brindle moved to New York where at the age of 33 he founded his advertising agency and worked for companies, such as, for example, the Douglas Aircraft, United Airlines, the Italian Steamship Lines and various car manufacturers, jobs that allow you to gain notoriety as an automotive artist. Melbourne Brindle did, in fact, the advertising for the launch of the Ford Thunderbird in 1955 and for the Buick Riviera in 1963 and edited, from 1950 to 1960, all the advertisements for Goodyear Tire. Brindle also received awards and recognition for some of his work, in 1934 and 1938 when he took part in the New York Art Directors Club exhibition; Daimler's painting of King Edward VII is on display at Buckingham Palace, while the Wright brothers' painting is on display at the Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.

The book, in excellent general condition, is the first edition of 1971 in English and traces the history of the English car manufacturer from its foundation to the production of Rolls-Royce Pre-World War I. It also contains 26 color illustrations by Melbourne Brindle.
