Descripción

This beautiful 343 page skybuster, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in the publishers ORIGINAL binding. Said binding being wonderful ruby red cloth with gilt, blue, and silver illustration of an early airplane bustig forth from the globe of earth. And this baby is rock solid, tight, and clean. Cover gilt is bright and shining. Gilt titling on spine is very much faded but still legible. Pictorial endpapers, six color plates by MANNING deV LEE and many vintage black & white photos, illustrated chapter title pages. Early history of the air plane, including material on balloon travel, the Wright Brothers, pioneer long distance flights, dirgibles & zeppelins, aircraft in WWI, artic & North Pole expeditions, Charles Lindbergh, more. Clean throughout. . Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Research, analysis, dissertation, lucubrations or just enjoyment, this is the one. N° de ref. de la librería 006657
