BOOK – A HISTORY OF FLIGHT: VOLUME THREE BY COURTLAND CANBY.
This is the third volume of this book series. Volume Three starts out with early attempts at aviation, from ancient attempts at winged flight on through the early balloons of 18th Century France. It then goes on to detail the history of modern aviation, but does NOT deal with WW I to any great extent. It focuses instead on civil aviation before and after WW I on up to just before its 1963 copyright date. The book is a first edition that comes complete with its dust jacket. It is in excellent condition.
