The Aeronautical Annual 1897

London: W. B. Clarke & Co., 1897. First Edition. Paperback. 8vo 8" - 9" tall; Boston, Mass: W. B. Clarke & Co. , London: William Wesley & Son, (1897). 9 1/8 x 6". Softcover. 178 pages + 18 plates of photographs and drawings. This issue contains several articles written by Otto Lilienthal before his death, as well a memorial address dedicated to him. Lilianthal was an aviation pioneer who was known as the first to make repeated, documented and successful glider flights. Good. While sturdily bound, the front cover is barely holding on and the rear cover is loosening as well. The covers are also soiled with an owner name (also on title page) and some surface loss. Occasional contemporary pencilled notes on the toned pages. Because these were poorly bound, they are difficult to find in excellent condition. Good with no dust jacket. Item #2

Price: $100.00
