Although the name Brooklands Books wasn't coined until some years later, the story began back in 1954 when John Dowdeswell, founder of the company, was unable to find any kind of manual or handbook for his newly-acquired Morgan three-wheeler. He did, however, locate an out-of-print work, "The Book Of The Morgan Three Wheeler" and obtain the publisher's permission to reprint it. Other owners, hearing of the book's re-appearance, were quick to order it from him. Clearly there was a lesson here and Dowdeswell subsequently produced a BSA three-wheeler handbook and two books on tuning Fords. Thus was set in motion a publishing program which has extended over the years to more than 1,000 titles covering cars from all parts of the world and virtually all areas.
