The Aeronautical Annual 1897

£9.99

Product description

From the foreword: "The Aeronautical Annuals of 1895-96-97 are among the most important pre-Wright era aviation books ever published. Prized by collectors, original editions are extremely rare; a pristine original set could be worth $3,000. In tribute to the brave early aviation pioneers, I am delighted to re-publish these treasures and make them available to everyone. In a letter to James Means’s son, Philip, dated November 12, 1921, Orville Wright wrote: “The Aeronautical Annuals of 1895-96-97 contained the best collection of reprints from the work of the earlier experimenters in aviation…, and I do not know of a better collection today....."
Modern reprinted paperback edition in fine condition.
