Fine condition hardback book. Clean, tight and bright. Fine condition, unclipped dustjacket. A very pleasing copy.
The life story of RJ Mitchell, designer of the Schneider Trophy racers and the immortal Spitfire, is told by his son Gordon and a galaxy of distinguished contributors who have either a particular knowledge of RJM’s work, worked with him at Supermarine or had a special association with his aircraft.
Lord Balfour contributed the foreword to this book and Johnnie Johnson compiled the tributes from a number of veteran fighter pilots.
A unique signed copy of an excellent Spitfire book.
