Bugatti books

Can anyone recommend a book (or books) on Bugatti - both the man and his cars? I'm slowly building up a motor sport library concentrating on the years 1930's - 1970s, including recent publications such as the Porter Press Autobiographies. I'm aware that Bugatti is a fascinating topic I want to know more about. Many thanks.

In no particular order:

The Bugatti Story by L'Ebé Bugatti (Souvenir Press 1967) - written by his daughter
Bugatti: Le Pur-Sang des Automobiles 3rd edition by Hugh Conway (Foulis 1973) - the best general history
Grand Prix Bugatti 3rd edition by Hugh Conway (Bugatti Trust 2004) - the bible on GP Bugattis!
Bugatti the Designer by Barry Eaglesfield (Brooklands Books 2013) - covers all Ettore's work. Very much a reference work.
Bugatti: A Racing History by David Venables (Haynes 2002) Just superb! One of three racing histories published by Haynes in the early 2000s, the others being Maserati: A Racing History by Anthony Pritchard and First Among Champions: the Alfa Romeo Grand Prix Cars, again by Venables.

You will however need deep pockets for most of those ...

Many thanks.

The Venables book looks affordable so I will need to check the piggy bank level.
