Rare 1935 autographed menu.


A rare four page autographed menu from a banquet held at the Dorchester Hotel London, September 24th 1935, in honour of Sir Malcolm Campbell following the setting up of his new Land Speed Record of 301.129 mph in 'Bluebird' in Utah, USA. The menu features an embossed profile of Campbell on the front cover wearing flying helmet and goggles, surmounting 301.129 and with fold-out diagram of the record-breaking vehicle. The menu has been signed on the inside front cover in pencil by Malcolm Campbell. Apart from some foxing on covers a very nice copy.
