Bugatti Queen: In search of a French Racing Legend By Miranda Seymour. Random House. 352 pages. $24.95. In her introduction, the author doesn't show us the photographs. Later she will, but at first, she simply describes them. One shows a beautiful woman wearing no clothes, holding a white dove as she throws her head back for the camera.
