Brussels "Servauto" International Motor Service - Services Automobiles Internationaux

Bruxelles: Imp. J. Remy.

Softcover. Near fine. Undated, but 1920s.7 x 5 in., 30 pp, b/w illustrations from photographs. Cover art signed "C.D." Slight edgewear; near fine. Claiming to be "the largest and most up-to-date motor hire company in Europe." Servauto offers cars with "specially built bodies for continental touring, Limousines, Landaulets, Cabriolets, and Touring Cars," and chauffeurs who are "not merely drivers," but "Chauffeur-Mechanicians...[who] all speak English and the various continental languages." Includes motor sightseeing itineraries within Belgium and to the Netherlands, Germany, and France. Scarce -- we find no holdings in OCLC and no evidence of this company when searching via a variety of methods. We presume it was short-lived. Perhaps the cost of hiring multilingual driver-mechanics was just too high.
