Thank you for replying Artur,

The book has 32 pages, i have uploaded a photo of every page. There was also a hand written note in there (see photos) very hard to read but seems to have something to do with valve timing.


Hope this helps

Cheers Ken

Nice booklet Ken. The 2 3/4 h.p. Douglases we pretty old fashioned, so the EW was a big thing for Douglas, critical to sales and winning back customers. No doubt this little book was produced to try to win back old customers and gain some new by convincing the public of the modernity of the new EW. So yes, I'd call it a sales/promotional brochure, albeit a very fancy one.

Dear Ken
Can you send to me xero or good scan this brochure?
I have EW from 1926 and I see that I can find a lot of information about EW.  I'm ready to pay for it ( jour job and delivery cost)  I will be grateful for it.
Best regards Artur

Thank you all for the feedback.

Artur,
 I made a copy of the book at work so that cost me nothing, if you want to pay for the postage i would be more than willing to send it your way.

Cheers Ken.
