About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Wonder Book of Aircraft for Boys and Girls.

Description:

G only/None. First edition with Robinson drawings (1919 bottom of title page). Pictorial boards (British Sopwith Triplane Scout on front cover with gold borders, lettering in blue) with blue cloth spine, lettering in black on spine. Humorous pictorial endpapers by Thomas Maybank. Contains 12 color plates and over 200 pictures, of which 8 are full page half-tone cartoons by W. Heath Robinson. There are numerous editions of this book published over a period of over 30 years (as aircraft changed so did the book), but according to the Beare addeda (page 31) the number of WHR's cartoons were fewer in subsequent editions. This copy reflects the childhood audience for which it was produced, with the boards scratched and showing wear, the spine darkened and rubbed, the front and rear free endpapers and an extra page attached to them missing (including the color frontispiece by George Watson). But all 8 W. Heath Robinson cartoons are present, which is the reason for buying this book. Despite its rough condition, it is a scarce and little cited title for the serious Robinson collector and student. TO SEE MORE PICTURES AND ADDITIONAL SPECIAL ITEMS, VISIT OUR BOOKSELLER's HOMEPAGE.
