THE BOEING 247: THE FIRST MODERN COMMERCIAL AIRPLANE.  THE FLYING CLASSICS SERIES., Holden, Henry M.
7 Holden, Henry M. THE BOEING 247: THE FIRST MODERN COMMERCIAL AIRPLANE. THE FLYING CLASSICS SERIES.
TAB / McGraw-Hill, Blue Ridge Summit, PA, 1991, first edition. 
168 pp, 9 3/16" H, soft cover. ISBN 0830635939 B&w photographs, drawings. "The introduction of the Boeing 247 in 1933 is widely regarded as the beginning of modern air transport. With an all-metal, stressed-skin design and a cruising speed of 17 0 miles an hour, the 247 marked the end of the slower, flimsy wood-and-dope frame biplanes used by the military and mail service. Though quickly overshadowed by its competitors, the 247 proved to the American public that commercial air travel c o u l d be both safe and efficient. In fact, this innovative airplane determined the direction of aircraft design for nearly the next two decades. (This books) traces the evolution of the 247, describing the technological and social circumstan c es d ur in g and after World War I that led to its development. You'll find fascinating descriptions of William Boeing's struggle to implement his unique designs, the public's reception of the 247, the aircraft's commercial and military uses, an d the 24 7's ul ti mate impact on aviation." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light edge wear, minor rubbing. Very Good

11 Wilson, Colin. THE GOD OF THE LABYRINTH.
London Rupert Hart-Davis 1970 246639784 First Edition Very Good- Very Good- 
305 pp, 8vo (8" H). " 'I have always been obsessed by the way that sexual experience seems to slip through the fingers like fairy gold - ' So writes Gerard Sorme, the narrator of Colin Wilson's entertainingly provocative novel. For Sorme the problem is how to sustain the blinding clarity of the sexual experience, even long after the experience itself. But how is this to be done? How are the senses to be kept at that dazzling pitch of perception? Sorme stumbles on to the solution almost by accident. On the track of the eighteenth century rake, Esmond Donnelly, he finds himself following a trail that leads from the home of an amazing sexual pervert in the deep American South to a fantastic climactic orgy in the English countryside - a labyrinthine trail of sex, lust and perversion that brings him ultimately to the truth about Esmond Donnelly and the excessive sexual behaviour of the group known as the Sect of the Phoenix. It takes him also to the unparalleled summit of his own sexual experience. Burning intellectual curiosity, a savage and perceptive eye for the darker areas of human experience, and the ability to write in a fast, entertaining way - these are the qualities that make (this book) a triumph." Faint cigarette odor, two very small light stains and erased pencil mark on free front endpaper, light browning to edges of text block, very small light stain on top of text block, small paper loss at bottom of inside rear hinge, slight wrinkling at bottom of spine, book is slightly cocked. Dust jacket has scattered very small foxing marks on front flap and inside surface, light browning at top edge of flaps and on spine, very light edge wear/wrinkling, tiny ship at bottom of rear flap fold, tiny dent on front hinge.
