ARTIFACT: This is a first edition hardcover copy of the "Aircraft of the World: Recognition Book". The book was published in London in the 1930s by Sampson Low, Marston & Co., Ltd. It is a "pocket" size, but far too thick to fit in any ordinary pocket at 1,056 pages. It covers planes from different countries, including Britain, Belgium, France, Germany and others. In the Foreword, the editor (Paymaster Lieutenant-Commander E.E. Talbot-Booth, R,N.R.) explains that this book came about out of the voiced need for a volume of plane silhouettes, rather than mere illustrations, for easier identification. There are several color illustrations of the airplane markings used by different nations.

VINTAGE: Circa 1930s.

SIZE: 1,056 pages including black and white photographs and some color illustrations; approximately 5-3/8" in height and 4-3/4" in width and 2-1/8" in thickness.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Embossed cloth-bound cover, paper.

ATTACHMENT: Glued binding.

MARKINGS: London Sampson Low, Marston & Co. Ltd.; Made and Printed in Great Britain by Furnell and Sons Ltd. Paulton (Somerset) and London.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a reference book collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VGEX03 LABEX6/13

CONDITION: 6 (Fine+): The book has spots of light to medium wear to the cover; some yellowing inside; pages 1023 plus some of the color illustrations have come out of the binding in a chunk, but are still present.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
