Readers of my reviews know my esteem of Roy Bacons work,
and this booklet is no exception.
It covers the Dominator range in a very brief but concise way. It is a very good, and cheap,
starting point for, say, a person interested in buying a Dominator.
The Dominator range was produced from 1948 until 1970, with the, in
many cases inferior, Norton/Matchless hybrids in the 1960s thrown in,
which are also covered in this booklet. I think the diversity of
Dominator models and derivates justifies more pages than Bacon allows for;
but, to be just, most models that came to my mind are covered in picture
and text, including the exotica, i.e. the Domiracers.
With clear pictures, mostly Norton press ones, a short summary of models
and changes over the years, and the usual technical index I love in all of
Bacons books, I think the Norton (Dominator) novice can read up on the
models he/she is interested in and decide what he/she wants.
As normal Norton books have a lamentable lack of production model pictures,
especially from the early Dommi era (pre-featherbed and wideline), this
booklet, as opposed to the Commando one, can be recommended to beginner
and collector alike.
The book is currently not in print.
