I'm looking for information (photos, particularly) on the car that was carrying Archduke Ferdinand when he was assassinated June 28,1914, in Sarajevo.<BR>I'm doing an illustration of the event --- and I have a few reference pictures -- but additional photos of the vehicle -- or another one like it -- would help me greatly.<BR>I haven't been able to determine the make or year, but I could e-mail a few of the pictures I've accumulated if someone wants to try identifying it.<P>Thanks for any help anyone can offer.<P>Nelson<P>[This message has been edited by nelson (edited 01-24-2000).]<p>[This message has been edited by nelson (edited 01-24-2000).]

I saw a book on the sale table at "Bookstar" her in Nashville on Saturday. The book was a coffe table sort of book of pictures from the period 1900 to 1999. The title was , or was very close to, The German Century in Pictures. There was a picture of the car in it. Alex Joyce

Better late than never, right ?

This period photo [probably one of the only ones of the Graf & Stift in which Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated] is from the book, in French, "Les Automobiles Celebres de l'Histoire" (History's Famous Cars), by Jean-Pierre Thevoz, published in Switzerland in 1976 by "Editions 24 Heures - Collection Auto" [it so happens that I contributed facts and information on 24 out of the 85 cars covered in the book].
