by Horst Schultz
This is the first book that I know of that focuses on the influence of Jean Bugatti on the Bugatti (especially automobile) designs.
The book starts off with a general history, as most books, but soon focuses on what the role Jean Bugatti played in design and development. It is however, not always clear what exactly Jean's role was.
Important part of the book is about the collection of T57's and T57S's which the author has collected, and which are to be seen in his BugattiMuseum, part of the museum "AutoVision" in Altlussheim, Germany.
In the end, it's an interesting book with a few new aspects. As a Bugatti expert, one sometimes gets distracted by the errors present in the book.
The book is over 300 pages, hardcover. Needless to say, that it is in German only.
For more information, and to order the book itself.
The book is available for €94,50.
