The Power to Fly: The Development of the Piston Engine in Aviation

London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd, (1971). First edition. Illustrated. Cloth over boards. Octavo. 224 pages. Very good in a very good dust jacket. A few light rubs to binding extremities. Prior owner name at top of half title. Jacket has a few light extremity rubs and a hint of fading to spine. Very clean and sound overall.

The fascinating tale of science, engineering wizardry, and commercial skullduggery that produced the engines which made powered flight possible. A good balance of technical material and characters in this excellent history.
