World Challenge. Proteus Bluebird Project 1963 [cover title]
[London?], Griggs Lander Associates Limited [for Donald Campbell?], February 1963.
Small oblong quarto (183 x 245 mm), 16 pages with numerous two-colour line illustrations.
Colour pictorial card covers (featuring Roy Nockolds artwork), with illustrations on the inside panels; covers a little marked, chipped and creased, with minimal expert conservation to a few short tears and splits to the hinge; basically a very good copy.
Donald Campbell has inscribed in ink his portrait printed on the first page 'To Michel, All good wishes from Donald Campbell'. The 1963 World Land Speed Record attempt at Lake Eyre was abandoned when a 20-year drought broke and the lake was flooded. A successful attempt was made the following year.
