This booklet was produced by the Daily Express after the first Tour of Britain to give the story of the event. It gives the background to the race and details of all 12 stages including photographs and full results. This was published back in the days when massed start cycle races were virtually unknown in Britain.

The booklet also includes adverts for many of the leading cycle related businesses including Viking, whose riders won both the individual and team classifications. It does give a good overview of the sport back in 1951.

It has 48 pages plus thin card covers and is 215 x 140mm in size, it is in good condition.

A very nice piece of cycling ephemera.
