About this Item

Halle 1808. In German. Octavo, 12pp., with one striking foldout plate (7-1/2 x 12 inches) of Degen's flying machine, removed from the Annalen der Physik and rebound in later wraps. This flying machine of Jakob Degen, a Viennese watchmaker, was one of the landmarks in the development of aviation. Plate shows a fullyclad standing man with two huge wing contraptions hooked to his shoulders and torso with an aerial view of the machine below his feet. Really great plate! (very light foxing on plate). VG. Bookseller Inventory # a52094
