3 Palmer, Henry R., Jr. THIS WAS AIR TRAVEL. A PICTORIAL HISTORY OF AERONAUTS AND AEROPLANES FROM THE BEGINNING TO NOW.
New York Bonanza 1962 Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
208 pp, 10 3/4" H. "(H)ere in full nostalgic glory are the Farmans, Wrights, Dorniers, Sikorskys and Martins which created new thrills in a new industry out of man's struggle to fly. Palmer has built a rare book of adventure on the airways by presenting hundreds of (b&w) photographs from his collection which has taken him many years to assemble. With these is the story of development, told in a crisp, readable style with an appendix for the technically minded. Here are the gas bags and gyrocopters - the 'Char-a-banc' and 'City of Glasgow' - the first planes to pack the mail and the first to span the seas. You learn of the early German mosnters and the facts about Henry Ford's 'Tine Goose'. You find pictured the exteriors and interiors of airplanes that made one flight and of others still flying in these days of jets. You read about daring pilots and inventive genius." Appendix I: The Story of the Schneider Trophy Race. Appendix II: Technical Specifications. Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light rubbing on spine with some very light color loss, very light rubbing on panels.
