Hi! I found this book in NISHIYAMA foreign book shop Tokyo Ginza. (You already know?)
" MACCHI SEAPLANE RACER , ALI D'ITALIA SPECIALE 26,LA BANCARELLA AERONAUTICA"
http://www.bancaero.it/index_eng.htm
This book shows MACCHI SEAPLANE RACER M33-M39-M52-M67-MC72 with very precise 3 side view drawings, colored side view pictures and cutaway side view pictures of each racer.
Also you find very beautiful colored 3 side view drawings of MC72 which clearly shows the location of skin cooler(wing, float and float support).
Additionally you find side view of following very famous Schneider Trophy racers.
1925 : Curtiss R3C-2, Gloster Ⅲ,Supermarine S.4
1926 : Curtiss F6C-1, Curtiss R3C-2 & R3C-4.
1927 : Supermarine S.5, Gloster ⅣR, Short Crusader
1929 : Supermarine S6eS.5, GlosterⅥ, Fiat C29, Piaggio Pc7,SIAI Marchetti S65
This book has ITALIAN-ENGLISH TEXT,you can study Italian!

This is slightly offtopic, but it is remarkable how well the Italians did with racing and how poorly with fighters.
Considering even small, airplane technology wise "newbie" countries like Sweden and Australia produced decent/marginal fighters, it is an odd thing.
