Fine in Very Good jacket. Heavy Item Postage Quote. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. This is a study of aircraft, from biplanes to monoplanes between the years 1919-39. The book is part of a 12-volume series, which covers the production and operation of aircraft worldwide. Each volume is devoted to essays on aircraft types, their development and option, systems and equipment.
