About this Item

This 99 page Limited Edition. Copy number 150, signed by author, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in the publishers ORIGINAL binding. Said binding being limp dark suede leather with gilt titles in red block. Book is totally solid and clean inside, though the limp covers are rubbed and tattered along the perimeter edges, quite qell worn on the outside. But inside is pure magic. Number written on top of first free end page. With a foreword by James H. "Jimmie" Doolittle. This book is dedicated: To My Brother Joseph Volney Wilson of the Lafayette Flying Corps and U.S. Army Air Service Killed , October 23, 1918 Delouse-sur-Meuse, France". Several aviation poems are included. Repeat, Numbered and signed by the avionic author. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 006525
