  • The Aeronautical Annual - 1895/1896/1897

     Means, James (ed).  The Aeronautical Annual (for) 1895, 1896 and 1897.  Boston, W.B. Clarke & Co.  The 1895 volume has 172pp, illus, 6x9.25", very good.  The 1896 volume is 158pp, illus, fair w/some spine text loss.  The 1897 volume is 178pp, illus, also fair.  All covers are intact and text blocks are sound.  Means selected the very best articles of the time from such illustrious aeronauts as Langley, Chanute, Lilienthal, Maxim, etc. 
     
    In a letter to James Means’s son, Philip, dated November 12, 1921, Orville Wright wrote: “The Aeronautical Annuals of 1895-96-97 contained the best collection of reprints from the work of the earlier experimenters in aviation…, and I do not know of a better collection today. Your father showed rare good judgment in his selections, separating most of the good work from the mass of worthless matter which had been published. “Your father’s work was of great benefit to us, and I think of my personal acquaintance with him with affection.” 
     
    This is a rare set in reasonably good condition and seldom offered with all three volumes together.  An unusual opportunity to obtain the entire run!
