I do have a couple but wonder if these are the same but with different covers? I'll have to go and dig them out now you've started something! I am unsure of the years that I have. Laters!

Italian Bibles

What you have there Nige is the 1st book `Mursia`published and it covered the years 1956 -75.They then did a second book `Questo E` L`Offshore` which covered 1976 -87.

Carlo Bonomi sponsored the first book,and obviously getting the tip off once it was first published,a small bookshop in Fareham got it for me as well as the second book.From memory they were about £30 in 1977.

An absolute must for the devotee.Loads of colour pics,283 pages stuffed full of facts.Postage could be high.1.6kg and 25mm thick.

Marco has one ,as you would expect,and is the only bugger that can read it.

`Mursia` also did the Buzzi book `Progettare Per Vincere`.All three books are the same size.

You could google `Mursia`but no doubt they are out of print,or maybe Marco could ask `Mursia` the best way to get a copy,but get moving,you don`t want to let your chance slip by.

Those `Offshore` books you have Nige,are `Free.L.Press` ones which ran 1988 -91.There were also the `Kaos` books which ran 1988 -92,or until the Spelta`s were locked up.Then there were the WOCC books from 1993-95.All nice books covering a golden era.

I bet there are some arab ones from 1996 onwards somewhere.

By the way the publisher for your book is `Mursia Editore`.

TBC probably has all those books courtesy of his mate Achilli.

I have two copies.
The first one bought in 1977 and is full of autographs and do not touch anymore. It is a icon.
A few years ago I found one on the internet at 10 euros and that I consume for quick consultations.
The price of 20 euros is still good, Nigel. Some time ago I found copies for sale at 45 euros. If you still have problems I can try to buy me and then I send it to you.

BTW Translations from Italian for today there are no more problems with a lot of translators in the network. I use Lexicool for example.

Unlike Searace which is full of informations(sometime incorrects) spanning a longer period, the book of Nobis (written in collaboration with the two other largest Italian journalists of the sport, Antonio Soccol and the late Carlo Marincovich) instead is exciting for the story races. As a best-selling novel.
The second published by Mario Risi is significantly poorer in the narrative and without data races.

Thanks for the offer Marco. I've just purchased the 'well used' copy on MareMagnum. Since writing my first on this thread someone (who was that?!)has snapped up the better more expensive copy that I wanted but which 'the system' wouldn't allow me to buy the other day!!!! (darn computers!) I'll just have to scan the photo's into the computer and digitally clean them up.

So youv`e found one.Get it,you can`t play around even at that price,which isn`t crippling.While shelling out,the Buzzi book is well worth getting as well.
You can die happy, old boy.
