War In The Air, Aerial Wonders Of Our Time
The Waverley Book Company Ltd, Farrington Street
No date but c. 1937
A pictured story of flying past: present: future, with 1300 illustrations including one hundred in photogravure
Special Edition in Two Volumes. 4.o. 8.5 x 11 inches. Together, 804 pages. Bound in original blue cloth gilt with outline of a plane stamped on top board. Preserved in original dust wrappers. Very good copy with just minor foxing on the preliminaries. These two volumes are wonderfully evocative of the inter-war period of pioneering aviation, then still in its infancy. The contents of each volume were originally published as a part-work sold via subscription. Once completed, the reader would have sent the contents to the Waverley Book Company who bound them into the two volumes and returned them in the condition these works are presented in.
