Man's conquest of the air is rooted in an age-old inspiration expressed in myths and legends of many cultures. Aviation tells the fascinating story of that conquest, from the foolhardy and sometimes hilarious endeavours of ancient 'birdmen' to the latest excursions into interplanetary space, and from the unsophisticated mechanisms of the Wright Flyer to the electronic wizardry of today's combat aircraft. 

Aviation is the work of nine authors, each a specialist in his field. Its 330 illustrations, most of them in colour, include many superb drawings by five distinguished aviation illustrators. 

Published by Cathay Books, London. 1978.

Hardback, good condition.
