Fine condition hardback book and dustjacket. The book is clean, bright and tight and feels unread.  It looks very smart in its protective cover. Practically new – a superb copy

The biography of one of Britain’s greatest engineers from his early days as an RAF pilot to his invention which revolutionised aviation and his shoddy treatment by the ‘Men from the Ministry’. 

This definitive book is the result of much research and collaboration between the inventor and his biographers.  With the benefit of hindsight and free from official gagging, this book reveals the excitement of new discovery and years of struggle against official bureaucracy and industrial skullduggery.

This is a first edition in great condition with a superb dated signature.  A rare opportunity for a spectacular addition to your signed aviation book library.
