Depends on the asking price and whether it features racing cars :)

It does, but only marginally and not as a seperate subject.

I send a PM to the first interested person on the subject, but no reply to date.
In principal, I go from the first poster onward. If he says no, then I will PM the next person.

I am asking the price I bought it for, as the book simply is in very good state an dis from 1981. I bought the version before realising I can get it in my own language (as in Dutch), so the only reason it is for sale is the language.

The very best summary about belgian industrian car and motorbike production is this book of the RMU (Royal Motor Union) of Liege of 1951. (*****out of *****)

It“s hard to get, but a real gem and full of pictures and information (pre 1951, of course...). See picture below

I“ve bought mine for 25 Euros, mostly you won“t get it for less than 120 EUR.

A cheaper and newer book is: "La Belgique et L“Automobile/Belgie en de Automobiel" in french and dutch, etited by Delhaize (ISBN 2-87341-001-9) see bottom picture:

(***out of*****)

Does anyone have the book called '100 ans de Sport Automobiles Belge'? I've seen only the shot of it closed, and suppose it is quite a big one. But is it worthy? Does it tell about the races only or about Belgian vehicles as well?

The front page hints at Belgian races, but as for example the Oostende-races were frequented by Belgian cars, theres bound to be a couple in there like Springuel and Imperia. Am I sure about that? No. But it would make sense.

Shopping again...I'd like to know if these books are worth the expense:
Is there a view of the inside? They are not expensive, but If I buy one of them, I have to buy them all...
What do you think?

.. and this?
La storia, la produzione e le gare che hanno visto la presenza delle famose vetture preparate dal tecnico torinese. Dalla Chichibio alle Sport, al Bisiluro, dalla Raggio Azzurro alla Syntesis. I rapporti con Danese, con i carrozzieri, Vignale, Frua, Michelotti, con le Case, Bmw, Alfa Romeo, Siata, Closley. 
Un ricco apparato fotografico e l’elenco delle gare che hanno visto le Nardi alla partenza, completano la pubblicazione.

I don't have this particular volume, but others of that series. All of them are quite well made and more or less comprehensive, but only contain plain b+w pictures. So they're more for reference than for enjoying fancy photos.
