391 pp + 203 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0517569205 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "More than twenty-five years after their first publication, (Larkins's) illustrated surveys of Navy and Marine Corps air craft remain two of the most valuable books about these airplanes ever written. With over 1,000 photographs combined, they remain the definitive record of the formative years for Navy and Marine Corps aviation. (His) emphasis throughout is o n s q u a dron use, experiemental and one-of-a-kind types, insignia, colors and marking schemes, technical innovations, and the service duty and tactical deployment of the various aircraft. During these years, the Navy and Marine Corps developed s ev e ra l di ff erent programs for colors and markings, and these are covered in exhaustive detail. Larkins was fully aware as he was assembling these books that, because of the Navy's practice of continually renumbering and reshuffling its squadro ns, h e w as pr ese rving valuable historical information that would soon become impossible to reconsruct. The books are arranged chronologically, and feature an aircraft assignment table for each year indicating which aircraft and which squadron s we re assi gne d to spe cific locations."

Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light rubbing, sma ll te ar and c reas ing a t bot tom of front hinge - archivally taped, very light browning at top/bottom edges.
