  • Handbook of Aircraft Armament - Facsimile Reprint

    SKU: 16-PILOT-00002

    The same manual as seen below but a lovely facsimile reprint by Early Aeronautica in a limited edition, numbered, of 25.  These have covers in antique cloth with the same titling and brass posts as the original, all done by master binder, Vernon Weiring in Grand Rapids, MI.  The color foldout of the Lewis gun is faithful to the original as are the two other foldouts.  I took great pains to get this right and you will be impressed with the quality of the printing and binding.  Each copy is hand-numbered in a form like the original.  Actually, the paper quality is better than the original; coated and thicker.  I will have these at SOS in Louisville and other spring midwestern shows.  I think you will be impressed by the quality.

  • Handbook of Aircraft Armament - Original 1918- RARE

    SKU: 16-PILOT-00001

    Bureau of Aircraft Production, Air Service, U.S. Army.  Handbook of Aircraft Armament.  Washington, GPO, 1918.  96pp, illus, one color foldout of aircraft Lewis gun, two foldouts of synchronizing gears.  Loads of photos in sections on machine guns, machine gun mounts, sychro gears, bombs bomb releases. bomb sights, ammunition, pyrotechnics and small arms.  6x8.5", hard cover with brass posts.  This is the definitive reference on WWI US aircraft arms.  It is one of the few places, for example, where you can identify U.S. aircraft bombs to include dimensions, weights and colors.  I have seen only two of these in 45 years of collecting and I own both; this one for sale.  On all of the internet book search sites, there are just two for sale at prices around $4000.  Of course, these are pie-in-the-sky dealer shots but it is definitely rare.  This one is serial numbered 4512 and is clearly stamped "Confidential".  Condition is good, some cover scuffs and the title page with roundel has an offset color of blue and a corner paper repair.  Elsewise it is a nice example of this rare manual. SOLD
