The Story of a Pioneer
Signed by Sir Frank Whittle
Signed by Sir Frank Whittle on the front end paper
‘With best wishes from Frank Whittle’
Frederick Muller. First edition, second impression 1953. 320 pages plus photographs.
Very Good condition hardback book and Very Good condition dustjacket. The book is tightly bound with a hint of scattered foxing to the first few pages and page edges. The DJ is complete, unclipped, bright and looks smart in its protective cover. There is a small neat dedication dated 1953 at the top of the front end paper. A nice condition example of this scarce book.
The autobiography of one of Britain’s greatest engineers from his early days as an RAF fighter pilot on 111 Squadron to his invention which revolutionised aviation and his shoddy treatment by the ‘Men from the Ministry’.
This is a scarce signed copy of an important autobiography. A rare opportunity for a spectacular addition to your signed aviation book library.
