A History of Aeronautics

by E. Charles Vivian

In this work is no claim to originality--it has been a mattermainly of compilation, and some stories, notably those of theWright Brothers and of Santos Dumont, are better told in thewords of the men themselves than any third party could tellthem. The author claims, however, that this is the firstattempt at recording the facts of development and stating, asfully as is possible in the compass of a single volume, howflight and aerostation have evolved.
