Illustrated History of Seaplanes and Flying Boats
Casey, Louis & Batchelor, John
Hamlyn  1980 
 Hardcover 128 well-illustrated pp, one kilo to post. Long before the concept of the aircraft runway was realised, those aircraft which forged original air routes around the globe had no option but to land on water. The very first aircraft to take off from water, however, did so as early as 1910 in France after which the idea spread and it was not long before a variety of hull designs appeared throughout the world. In this work, we find a fascinating history of the Seaplane and the larger variety which became known as Flying Boats. In addition we learn of the progress in design brought about by the Schneider Trophy races in addition to that shown by the military with recoverable spotter planes being used long before the advent of the Aircraft Carrier.  Very Good/Very Good

UNDER THE GUNS OF THE RED BARON The Complete Record of Von Richthofen’s Victories and Victims Fully Illustrated
Franks Norman, Giblin Hal and McCrery Nigel
Caxton  2000 
 Hardcover 1.2 kg, 224pp with numerous illustrations throughout, faults? two small repaired tears atop dj at spine & flapfold. Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen was the most feared and celebrated of all German pilots in World War I, and has become one of the iconic figures of history. This book, by three respected historians, has researched in detail the lives of all of his 123 victims (over 100 of whom are depicted), and provides a blow-by-blow account of their encounter with the great man - a unique compilation of material. reviewer says >>> The book itself is thoroughly well researched,the authors having combed both British and German records to authenticate MvR`s claims. The result is probably the definitive listing of the 80 victories. However, it goes further by giving the biographies, and wherever possible, the photographs of each of the RFC/RNAS/RAF crewmen.   Very Good/excellent/Good
