The Magic of a Name tells the fascinating story of the first forty years of Britain's most prestigious manufacturer - Rolls-Royce - a company whose record of achievements is part of the history of the twentieth century.The book begins with the historic meeting in May 1904 of two great men, Henry Royce and the Honorable C.S. Rolls. Their instant rapport led to an agreement whereby Royce would design 'the best cards in the world' and Rolls would advertise and sell them. In 1906, Rolls-Royce Limited was formed. Claude Johnson joined the company as a visionary Managing Director, and the legendary Silver Ghost, 'the best car in the world', was born.
