About this Item: Arsdalen, Bosch & Co, 1992. PAPERBACK. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 0960073612 1992 signed and limited (467 of 1,000 copies) first edition, Arsdalen, Bosch and Co. (Carlisle, Massachusetts), 5 7/8 x 9 inches tall paperbound, copiously illustrated with black-and-white photographs, [10], 409 pp. Light soiling and moderate rubbing and edgewear to covers. Slight soiling to fore page edges. Very slight creasing to fore page edges on first couple of pages. Nicely signed by the author on the blank front free-endpaper. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked. ~SP28~ Three of mankind's greatest inventions occurred in the years beginning this story: the telephone, the automobile, and the airplane - with all engulfed in momentous patent battles. The victors of two, Alexander Graham Bell and Henry Ford, then played crucial roles in the third, the epic fight between the Wright brothers and Glenn Curtiss. If American aviation history was truly told, our children would know that Glenn Hammond Curtiss (1878 - 1930) was the greatest person in its history; that he was most responsible for creating America's preeminent aviation industry; that from 1911 to 1948 Curtiss companies 'led the world in aviation'; that he was 'The Henry Ford of Aviation.' And that Alexander Graham Bell was his partner and co-founder of our aviation industry; that he was a major figure in the development of flight in America; and he with Ford helped Curtiss stop the Wright brothers' attempted monopoly of world aviation.

About this Item: Arsdalen, Bosch & Co., Carlisle, MA, 1992. Softcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Viii, 409 pages, well illustrated, pictorial wrappers, very good. #224 of 1000. Inscribed by author. From the Amazon website review by Steve Stumph: "Pendulum is written for the serious student of early aviation history. Unlike most stories that focus on the Wright brothers' struggles before Dec. 17, 1903, this book delves into what happened AFTER Kitty Hawk. In 1908 Glenn Curtiss won the Scientific American Magazine trophy for the first public flight in America. It was he, not the Wright brothers, who received instant fame and glory. He built and sold civilian airplanes while they focused on a single sale to the American, British or French Army. The book explains how early chronicles touted Glenn Curtiss, not the Wrights, as the pioneer of aviation. Thousands of Curtiss JN-4 "Jennys" were used to train WW-I pilots. Today the pendulum has swung to the opposite extreme. Few people know of Curtiss, inventer of the flying boat and father of naval aviation, but everyone has seen the photo of Orville Wright's famous "First Flight" at Kitty Hawk. In a sometimes dry account, Jack Carpenter meticulously compares step-by-step progress of the three men, with more rare photos than any other book. He tells how they were influenced by Alexander Graham Bell, inventer of the telephone, and Henry Ford, the father of mass produced automobiles. Having studied the lives of all three men, I think Pendulum is the only book that gives an unbiased account of the bitter patent lawsuit that delayed the growth of American aviation for 10 years." ; ; 409 pages; Signed by Author.
