Let The Reader Be The Judge

Posted in Book Blog

Since we published the first edition of Donald Campbell, Bluebird and the Final Record Attempt back in October 2011, we have had pretty much nothing but positive reviews and feedback. Both Keith and I are so pleased that the book has brought a lot of pleasure to people who have wanted to find out more about the Donald Campbell legend.

We never claimed that 'The Final Record Attempt' was the definitive account of Campbell's last campaign, but we worked very hard to ensure the content was as well thought through and accurate as it could be.

Due to the overwhelming success of the first edition of 'Donald Campbell, Bluebird And The Final Record Attempt', History Press are publishing a second -soft-back- edition towards the end of October 2012. This soft-back version is essentially the same book as the first edition, with the same high quality production values and layout.

The second edition contains a number of text revisions and additions as well as more than 20 new and previously unseen illustrations.

The cover price of the softback will be £20,00. You can now pre-order the softback rom our shop. Shipping will only commence once the book is officially published by the History Press.
