De Dion Bouton: The Essential Library and Source Book, 1888-1931

This project has been in creation for almost two decades. Published bibliographies of the output of any motor car manufacturer are rare, and this is especially the case in the veteran world, where published material is scattered across a broad range of journals, many of which are scarce or difficult to find. Few bibliographies can claim to be exhaustive and definitive, but this particular volume, a first attempt of abibliography of the De Dion Bouton company, is a comprehensive treatment of the motortricycles, passenger cars andcommercial vehicles that left the factory over the forty years of production.

More than 2,000 known publications and articles from English, French and German sources are included, and presented in chronological order. Each reference has a short commentary on the relevance of the content. For individual car owners or enthusiasts wishing to research a particular Type of vehicle, there are charts of the output of each year, divided into different sections for passenger and commercial vehicles, with a listing of technicalspecifications.In the main body of the text, there is an introduction on the sources available during the period 1888-1931 and their relative importance, as well as a section on the development of the company. Preceding each chapter of references, there is an introductory essay on the historical context and details of the vehicles referenced. Together, the introductions amount to 35,000 words and provide a narrative of the company and its products from the beginning to the end. The appendices include a lengthy consideration of the production volumes and offer guidance on where thequoted sources can be located.

This is a 240-page volume of identical specification to the previousDe Dion Bouton Type andSpecificationseries andThe Tricycle Books.There are more than 200 illustrations in colour and black and whiteof the vehiclesunder review,many of which have not been published previously, along with extracts taken from the company’s catalogues, .

The Essential Library and Source Book will be of value to those interested in the De Dion Bouton marque and to all early motoring enthusiasts curious to learn more about the fluctuating fortunes of the world’s largest engine manufacturer at the turn of the last century, whose contribution had largely been forgotten forty years later.

The print run for this volume will be limited to 300 copies.

Copies can be ordered through the website: surrendenpress.com; by email (mre01@live.co.uk), or by calling +44(0) 7500003926

Type AV1 Motor cycle - 1925

De Dion Bouton - 98cc AV1 - 1925 

This motor cycle, possibly the only surviving example of the model, was part of a collection for many years, and will require simple re-commissioning and registration before use, but it is complete. 

The model was introduced following the Bicyclette Moteur Auxiliary (BMA) law of 1925 which stated that no licence was required for vehicles with engines less than 100cc, weighing less than 30 kg and a top speed of 30 km/h.

1921 De Dion Bouton Type IE

1921 Type IE (chassis no. 4261) - Paris 'Town car'

The Type IE, launched in August 1921 with a four cylinder monobloc side valve engine (70mm bore x 120mm stroke) of 10hp was virtually identical to the Type ID of the previosu year, apart from having a 10cm longer wheelbase. With its semi-elliptic supension on the front and cantlilever arrangement to the rear, it followed the pattern of the majority of the 1920s cars.

This particular vehicle was imported into the UK 20 years ago, having had its chassis and mechanical elements restored. Work continued on the sumptuous interior, with its front seats upholstered in claret leather and the rear seats  in a contrasting material of a period design. There are lots of polished wood trims, the doors have window sashes, with fluted trim panels  and bone handles. The centre piece is a polished mahogany unit with a silver topped decanter and 2 cut glasses. The bodywork was restored and painted laret with black wings, colours that were  close to the original. The exterior of the car had the remains of 'Cannage', but lacking the knowledge of this process, simple paintwork was chosen.

Price: £27,000.

1907 Type AL De Dion Bouton Rear Entrance Tonneau

1907 Type AL De Dion Bouton Rear Entrance Tonneau

Car no. 288, Engine no. 22310

VCC dated, Cert no. 2316

The Type AL was produced by De Dion Bouton from 1905 until 1908. It continued the tradition of the vertically mounted, high revving, single cylinder engines that had originally established the company in the mid-1890s. As well as the engine, the other core components of this vehicle, the expanding clutch gearbox/differential, carburettor, cooling and electric ignition, were all tried and tested by this stage.

This vehicle has the benefit of an electric starter, is easy to drive and maintain, reliable, and with the 8hp engine and 3-speed gearbox it is more than adequate to transport four people in comfort.

A complete, major overhaul has just been carried out at Mick Penney's workshop. The car is running beautifully in all respects. 

Asking price: £42,000 or close offer

1911 Type CS2 De Dion Bouton Tourer

1911 Type CS2 De Dion Bouton Tourer

Engine no. 6765C; Gearbox no. 26183

The Type CS2 has a 14hp, four-cylinder engine of 2121cc with mechanical valves, a double sleeve sliding pinion, four-speed gearbox, and a pressed steel chassis. It was launched at the Paris Salon at the end of November 1911, and remained in production until the end of the following year. With a price tag of F.Fr 8,100, it was aimed at the higher end of the market, and sold well. An example of this particular model can be found at the Shlumpf Museum in France.

This car was imported from France some years ago, and following a substantial restoration of the open bodied tourer coachwork, has been fastidiously maintained. It starts easily, requires little effort to maintain a steady cruising speed of 40+mph, is extremely comfortable for front and rear passengers, and is well equipped with enough brass equipment to keep the most fastidious of polishers well occupied.
