Proteus Bluebird Project [Donald Campbell]


Official brochure of Donald Campbell’s World Land Speed Attempt, 1963.

Out of stock


This booklet is the official brochure that Campbell had produced by Griggs Lander Associates to accompany his attempt to break the World Land Speed Record at Lake Eyre in 1963. This attempt was thwarted when a 20-year drought broke and flooded the lake (Campbell returned the following year and his mission was then successful).

This ephemeral item is exceedingly rare and our copy is in exemplary condition.

16pp with card wraps illustrated from original paintings by Roy Nockolds.
