Edited By Jarrett, Philip
This is a study of aircraft, from biplanes to monoplanes between the years 1919-39. The book is part of a 12-volume series, which covers the production and operation of aircraft worldwide. Each volume is devoted to essays on aircraft types, their development and option, systems and equipment. As well as outlining developments, each article seeks to explain why progress was in a particular direction, emphasizing the political, strategic or economic factors that dictated that development. Moving from the general to the specific, graphs and tabular data relating to typical or significant aircraft or allied subjects are provided in each section. The series concentrates on the development of aircraft from the viewpoint of their technical development, the effect of technical development on the use of aircraft, and the effect of their usage on technical development. Contributors to this title include: Ken Munson, John Stround, Ted Hooton, Peter Hearn, Norman Friedman, Darrol Stinton, Patrick Hassell, Mike Hirst, Morman Barfield, Harry Woodman, Ralph Barker, Sebastian Ritchie and Christopher Shores. 264pp. N.B.

De Saint Jorre, John
Slight bump to bottom of spine and d/j. This book tells the story of the Olympia Press and of Maurice Girodias, "Pornographer with heart", "Lenin of the Sexual Revolution" and publisher of books of exceptional quality which no-one else dared to handle. Titles such as: Henry Miller's "Tropic of Cancer" and "Tropic of Capricorn"; Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita"; William Burrough's "THe Naked Lunch"; J.P. Donleavy"s "The Ginger Man"; and Terry Southern's "Candy". The text also includes an interview with the pseudonymous author of the clandestine bestseller, "The Story of Q". The fact that almost all of these publications led to flamboyant disputes, public rows, legal actions and literary feuds of unparalleled ferocity, only testifies to the fascination of Girodias's escapades. This account reveals an extraordinary egoist and a world on the point of change towards the sexual liberation of the 60s.332pp.
