THE ARC, THE GRAND HISTORY OF THE PRIX DE L'ARC DE TRIOMPHE is a remarkable leather-bound limited-edition book, and a milestone in racing publishing. This large-format, exquisitely printed 400-page volume recounts, for the first time, the running of every Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe from its inauguration in 1920 through to the race of 1997.
"This is no ordinary book. It is a work of art, most especially the art of the print-maker and book-binder... The buyer - one might also say investor - will not be disappointed. Here, for the first time, is the history of the Arc, meticulously and exhaustively researched... It is a superb design job, featuring more than 250 photographs, many previously unpublished."
