A. Dunhill Ltd Timepieces | Today the name Alfred Dunhill is synonymous with a typically British brand of masculine elegance: luxurious leather goods, smoking accessories, writing instruments, and timepieces. But most have forgotten that the Dunhill saga is tantamount to the early history of the automotive industry in Britain. At the turn of the last century, the young Alfred Dunhill embraced this new method of transport and quickly devised numerous specialized products without which no fashionable gentleman could properly call himself a motorist. To this end he coined the term "motorities" to describe the automotive accessories sold in his elegant shop in central London. This volume traces the creative history of the Dunhill company from the 1890s to the present day, beginning with the early motoring designs and moving through the tobacconist's shops in London, Paris, and New York, then arriving at the exquisite leather goods and men's wear of the current collection. A perfect gift for men, beautifully designed and illustrated with photographs from Dunhill's rich archives as well as new photography commissioned especially for this volume, the book will delight all those interested in the history of men's fashion and automotive history, as well as collectors of fine smoking accessories and writing instruments.
