Paolo Rampini is one of the greatest Italian collectors of miniature cars. He is the author of this prestigious book which intends to give the reader a complete and detailed history of the models produced in Spain in the past century. The volume is a photographic catalogue, rich in colour illustrations reproducing miniature cars in all scales; from the rarest models built in few copies in the early 1900, up to the recent massive production. Very helpful to the collector is also the listing of each model with sale price.
The present work is about motorcycle toys. It’s given more space to photographs in order to have scientific documentation which is reliable as possible. In the first part of the book the collector can find the complete list of the producers of motorcycle toys before 1970, while in the second part you can find the most part of models in coloured pictures.
