About this Item: New York: F. O. Willhofft, 1926. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 8vo, original cloth, slightly rubbed at tips, spine stamping dull, 110pp. Numerous illustrations in line and in halftone. An invention, as here, adapted to a ship's rudder, with the help of two over-sized rotating towers made to achieve propulsion through wind movements, the rotor had been initially designed with applications for controlling the movements of an airplane's nose, up or down. -[with, loosely inserted]- "FLETTNER. THE FLETTNER ROTOR SHIP." Small, four-panelled promotional literature, with illustrations, circa 1926, one of which displays the "Baden-Baden" as so equipped. Decidedly an engineering oddity, not likely since imitated to these specifications. First American Edition. Seller Inventory # E-58/68
