About this Item

Entire issue, volume 174, No. 6, June, 1902, in original red-orange wraps with black lettering, edges untrimmed, very shallow chipping along edge of front wrap, light soiling, mostly at rear wrap, spine chipped about 1/4-inch at tail, rubbed about 1/2-inch at head, with minor loss, 3-inch vertical, closed, discrete, split noted at spine bottom, minor shelf-lean noted at top half of spine, front wrap generally bright and clean. Presentation exceeds description. From the notes on contributors concerning the author, "He was among the first to take up the automobile, and after he became interested in aeronautics, some five years ago, he conceived the idea of using in balloons of cylindrical form compact and light motors such as are employed in automobiles, in the attempt to build a practicable air-ship. The experiments in which he has been engaged since then - in the course of which he has several times narrowly escaped death - have attracted universal attention and have resulted in a marked improvement in his machine as originally planned. In his article in this number of the Review, the first article he has written on the subject, he sets forth the reasons for his confident hope that he will succeed in solving the problem of aerial navigation." Issue also includes The Nature of Volcanoes, by N. S. Shaler, The New Influence on the British Throne, by Lady Jeune, America and France, by Gaston Deschamps, Strikes in the United States, by Carroll D. Wright, Municipal Suppression of Infection and Contagion, by Ernst J. Lederle, How to Curb the Trusts, by Henry Michelsen, Richard Strauss and his Music, by Gustav Kobbe, America's Control of England's Food Supply, by J. D. Whelpley, Defects and Abuses in our Postal System, by H. A. Castle, The Tobacco War in Great Britain, by Lincoln Springfield, Meteorology and the Position of Science in America, by Cleveland Abbe, and Public Debt of the German Empire, by Dr. Adolph Wagner. Very scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 014884
