Book Description London: Putnam, (1960). First Edition., 1960. Octavo, brown cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 256 pp. Former-owner bookplate; otherwise, Fine (As New) in a Near-Fine dust jacket with lightly rubbed edges. From dust jacket: Claude Grahame-White could be regarded as Britain's, if not the world's, foremost all-round aeronaut. He was the only man ever to hold the three most coveted gold medals for flying: from the Royal Aero Club, the Aero Club de France, and the Aero Club of America. He taught himself to fly, and soloed without a single lesson, becoming the first Briton to hold an internationally recognized pilot's certificate. He opened the first British school of flying, and thereby became the pioneer instructor. Single-handed he developed London Aerodrome at Hendon. In this full biography, Graham Wallace tells of his exploits -- how Grahame-White organized Britain's first air mail service; built and operated the world's first commercial air-liner; exhibited Britain's first military aircraft, and flew in the first great air raid of the 1914-18 war. At 37 he was a Commander in the Royal Naval Air Service, and Chairman of an important aircraft company. Aviation, Military History, Aeronautics, British History. yslic. Bookseller Inventory # 3354gl
