Vintage 1923 Photo of Edouard Probst at the Le Mans 24 Hours in Berliet VH 12HP + Sales Leaflet.

This is a vintage 1923 photo of the Berliet VH 12HP of Edouard Probst and "Redon" during the VERY FIRST 24 Hours of Le Mans EVER! The race was then called the "Premiere Grand Prix d'Endurance".

Please note that this is VINTAGE photo, NOT a modern reproduction of ANY kind!

It is also the very first item of the first Le Mans ever that we unearthed.

The photo shows the Berliet storming past the Texaco stand on the start - finish straight during the daytime.

The couple finished on a shared 19th place (together with the La Lorraine Dietrich of Bloch-Stalter) with a total of 1.519 kms to their name.

We also happened to come across a very rare sales leaflet of the Berliet 12HP. We include this leaflet as a bonus for the buyer of this VERY rare Le Mans item.

Dimensions: approximately 3.5 x 2.5 inches or 9 x 6.5 cm.

Decent condition but clearly a private snapshot. Please check the scan for exact condition.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1923.

Only 1 set available.

Vintage 1949 Le Mans 24 Hours by Roger Labric and Geo Ham - NUMBERED EDITION

Vintage 1949 Le Mans 24 Hours by Roger Labric and Geo Ham.

This book, issued in 1949 by the A.C.O. (organizing body of the 24 Heures du Mans), if often considered as THE prized possession for serious Le Mans collectors.

This is one of the VERY few surviving NUMBERED copies!

As a matter of fact, this number 528 of the 1000 numbered copies that were issued.

VERY scarce as in our 15+ years of trading Le Mans memorabilia, this is the very first one we ever managed to source!

We are very proud to be able to offer for sale this book which survives in excellent condition for this book despite its slightly weak binding.

Being a BIG book, some 25 x 32 cm or 10 x 13 inches and 471 pages (it is some 6 cm or 2.5 inches thick!) it is a very detailed account of the 24 Hours races as held in the pre WW2 era (1923 - 1939) including stats and reports on the drivers with countless illustrations and portraits by the fantastic artist, Geo Ham (Georges Hamel).

Please note that this numbered edition is actually THICKER than the "regular" version despite having the exact same contents and same number of pages.

Very, VERY scarce and an absolute "must have" for the endearing Le Mans collector!

Only 1 available of course !

We offer FREE shipping to ANY destination in the world on this item but given its value, we advise you to take the optional insurance (available at check-out) on it.
