MESSERSCHMITT Bf 110 ZERSTORER ACES OF WORLD WAR 2.  OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES 25., Weal, John.
121 Weal, John. MESSERSCHMITT Bf 110 ZERSTORER ACES OF WORLD WAR 2. OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES 25.
Oxford Osprey 1999 1855327538 / 9781855327535 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good+ 
104 pp, 9 3/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, drawings, colour plates. "Although the Messerschmitt's single-engined Bf 109 received most of the plaudits for achieving virtual air superiority over Europe in 1939-40, the exploits of the manufacturer's twin-engined Bf 110 Zerstorer in the first years of the war also make for impressive reading. Acting as the 'main spearhead' of the Luftwaffe, the Zerstorergeschwader committed to the invasion of Poland swiftly brushed aside the Polish Air Force in a matter of days. This success continued until the spring of 1940, when the first RAF Spitfires and Hurricanes were encountered in significant numbers following the launch of the Blitzkrieg in Western Europe. From that point on, Bf 110 crews had to fight for their lives. Only in the Balkans and far flung North Africa in 1941 did the Bf 110 enjoy an 'Indian summer' in the daylight fighter role. Despite its obsolescence, the aircraft continued to perform as a heavy fighter, particularly in 1943-44 as USAAF heavy bomber formations raided Germany on a daily basis. Featuring the exploits of Ju 88 and Me 410 pilots as well as Bf 110 crews, this volume is the first of its type to be devoted exclusively to Zerstorer day fighter aces, and spans the war years from Poland to the Defence of the Reich." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - one tiny corne crease and one small soft crease on front cover.

VERSATILE YANKEE:  THE ART OF JONATHAN FISHER, 1768-1847., Winchester, Alice.
123 Winchester, Alice. VERSATILE YANKEE: THE ART OF JONATHAN FISHER, 1768-1847.
Princeton Pyne Press 1973 878610510 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- Jonathan Fisher. 
29 pp + 40 plates (printed on one side of leaf, captions facing), + (9) pp List of Works, 12 1/4" H. Colour plates plus additional b&w illustrations. The Reverend Jonathan Fisher of Blue Hill, Maine "was a universal man - inventor, farmer, architect and builder, surveyor, linguist, naturalist. Above all he was an artist, translating his vision of the goodness and orderliness of God's creation into paintings and woodcuts. Made for his own enjoyment and that of his family and a few friends, Fisher's paintings have largely been preserved in the small community where he lived and worked for forty years. This book, while it reveals Fisher's many-sided personality, is basically devoted to illustrating his work. The majority of his paintings are published here for the first time - the water colors from his notebooks, begun when he was an undergraduate at Harvard, and lovingly bound with his own hands; a selection of his most important paintings in oil; and many of the woodcuts with which he illustrated his books. Here, carefully recorded, with straight-forward and painstaking realism, are Fisher's college and his village, the fruits of his garden, and the animals and birds of field and forest. No subject is too small to engage his interest, none too dry to be transformed by his imagination. The common house fly and a wondrous carrot are fully detailed; garlands of fruits and flowers run riot through his mathematical exercises." Previous owner's bookplate on front pastedown, minor twist to spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, three edge tears archivally taped, very light rubbing, several light scratches on rear panel.
