About this Item

From the editors and compilers of "Jane's All the World's Aircraft." 1,500 illustrations in color and B&W. Copyright page states "First published in the United States of America by Crown Publishers, Inc.," which sounds like a first edition, but then adds "Reprinted 1976." Follows the 1972 New English Library Edition. Not price clipped -- original $30.00 price showing. Laminating material on full-color photo DJ has formed some vertical striations (wrinkles), both front & back. DJ also sports a one-inch closed tear to top of front panel. Dated Christmas, 1976, inscribed, and signed in blue ballpoint to the FFE by co-author Kenneth Munson ("the handsome one".) There seems to be a conscious DE-emphasis on both aerial warfare and engineering, in favor of airlines, flying clubs, and the like. Occasional British focus revealed by such chapters as "Hendon's Heyday." ("Scene of the never-to-be-forgotten RAF Pageants and Displays.") This book weighs more than five pounds and will cost twice our usual fee to ship within the U.S. or Canada. Printed in Italy. 511 pp. including index. Reduced from $65. A NOTE TO OUR OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS: While we welcome offshore orders, heavy books present a special problem. We ship our books in boxes, and all international boxes of more than 4 lbs. must now travel by air, "Priority Mail." This book is thus likely to cost something on the order of $54 to ship overseas. While we rebate overage above actual shipping costs, overseas buyers should not order this book or other heavy books unless they're willing to approve and pay the requisite "Priority" shipping. (AND A FURTHER NOTE: The word "inscribed" means the author has written words other than his name in this book. We strongly urge potential buyers to examine the attached scans before ordering our inscribed books.) Price here reduced from $25. Bookseller Inventory # 001301
