Cloth, 8vo, vii, , 1493 pp. From the publisher's description: "This second volume of Brockett's famous bibliography follows our 1997 reprinting of volume one of this series. This second volume covers the period from 1909-1916." From the introduction: "This work covers the literature published from July 1, 1909, to December 31, 1916 .[when] aeronautics was passing through a transition period ., and these years were important, as aircraft of the heavier-than-air types were just emerging from obscurity and ridicule in 1909. Langley had published his pioneer works, "The Internal Work of the Wind," and "Aerodynamics," and had proved his theories by the practical demonstration of his model heavier-than-air machine. The Wright Brothers had glided and flown in a heavier-than-air machine, and Count Zeppelin had passenger-carrying airships operating in Germany. A brief interval of research followed these epoch-making advances until 1914, when the accumulated knowledge on this subject was called into service for the World War. The advance in aeronautics from that time until 1916 was by leaps and bounds, and resulted in the development of aeronautics as the most important factor in the World War. .[C]itations of the publications of all nations have been included in the languages in which these publications originally appeared. The arrangement is dictionary form with author and subject entry, and one alphabetical arrangement." Fine. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-39364
