Moreau-Berillon, Commandant E.  L-Aviation Francaise, 1914-1940 --Ses Escadrilles, Ses Insignia.  Paris: Privately printed, 1968. French text. Originally offered in a light-weight blue card folder, the front and back covers included here.  Now the eight folders are in a black binder, each folder in its own plastic sleeve with a multi-page descriptive flyer in each folder. Privately printed by Commandant E. Moreau-Berillon in Paris in 1968 in a stated limited edition of 1000 copies (this is copy #98, unlikely the edition was really this large). There is a total of about 184 plates, each 10x13" and hand colored. Bright, clean, and unblemished condition, with nearly all of the airplane markings rendered in color. Errata slip laid in. Extremely heavy (11 pounds).  Scarce in such lovely condition. Fine.
