Vintage 1959 Le Mans 24 Hours Race Program.
Mint condition for its age.
The cover shows the then-new Renault Floride (Renault probably paid a hefty sum to get it on the cover...).
The inside pages show of course a myriad of contemporary advertising which alone makes it worth going through this booklet of 96 pages.
The booklet also served as a ticket in the tombola in which you could win such a Renault Floride or, as a kind of consolation prize, a gold-plated "Silver Match" cigarette lighter...
For this purpose, these booklets were numbered and this is number 012249 but it might be a bit late to claim your prize...
It measures some 21.5 cm x 27 cm.
The race was won by Roy Salvadori & Carroll Shelby in their Aston Martin DBR1/300 (S/N 2) with a total of 323 laps to their name.
