Aldo’s new book!

May 26, 2015

Aldo Carrer has finished his latest book, a continuation of the previous one hereThe Motorcycle of 1900 is published in English, Italian and German, but could likely be understood by readers of many other languages. It features photos from Aldo’s collection, acquired via decades of work searching through European swap meets, auctions and family connections. Aldo has gathered thousands of loose images, postcards, and complete scrapbooks dating back well over 100 years. The book is focused on primitive (but quickly evolving!) vehicles with two or three wheels. They are sorted by the country of origin, with a short description and date for each photo. As with Aldo’s previous books, they are a treasure for the fan of motorized transport and also make good gifts. 


216 pages. 8.5”x12” Hardbound, published by EDS Edizioni


To buy a copy, contact Aldo here:


US pricing is 30 Euros plus shipping. I’ll ship direct from San Francisco. Anywhere in the USA is $14(or 12.86€) prepaid, or you can pick it up for free here in SF. That total is 30+12.86 = 42.86Euros to Aldo’s Paypal at the email listed above.


Europe and rest of the world pricing & shipping depends on where you live. Contact Aldo directly and he’ll set you up.

    The cover alone is worth the price! John Duss

    I have purchased ALL of Aldo Carro’s prior books directly and had them shipped from IT. The quality of the rare images (mainly EU sourced, not re-hashed US photos) and the publications in general make them a satisfying investment. Quickly shipped. I’m looking forward to reading Aldo’s latest book. respectfully, Brad K.
