TitleGeorge Henry Roesch
DescriptionEngineers notebook, automotive. Notes on: systems, components and characteristics of new and ideal cars; technical data on gears, brake horse power and performance of various automobiles with related information, 1914-1919; data on Peugeot racing cars and modifications to Peugeot designs; and assorted notes, including on Sunbeam and Rolls-Royce vehicles, with useful addresses.

Roesch became chief engineer at Talbot in 1925, having worked previously for the Sunbeam-Talbot- Darracq racing co-operative. His first project was the development of the Talbot 10/23; that vehicle's Weymann fabric saloon body is apparently noted here (p32). Post-War STD racing cars utilised the design of pre-War Peugeot automobiles, hence Roesch's interest expressed in this volume.
