Mr Bristol - The Remarkable Life of T.A.D. Crook

Loustal’s magnificent rendition of the Bristol Buccaneer on page 40.

Tony Crook (1920 - 2014) is an enigmatic figure in the British motor racing and manufacturing world. For nearly seventy years he was associated with Bristol cars and engines. Four years after his death, Butterfield Press is proud to announce Mr Bristol.

Three years in the making and lavishly illustrated, Mr Bristol celebrates the life of Tony Crook with a biography written by Michael Barton, a treasure trove of photographs from Crook’s racing career, and a generous selection of images (specially commissioned) from his most famous cars (built or owned).

Published as a companion piece to Mr Bristol (included in the price) is Dreamers, a translation of a non-fiction novel written by acclaimed Dutch author Cornelis van den Berg, in which the main character befriends Tony Crook.
