A History of Aircraft

Nature volume 130, page 419 (17 September 1932) | Download Citation



THIS is an extremely readable American publication, which does not, as several others have recently, give undue prominence to American achievement. Its record ranges from Archytas in 400 B.C. to Post and Gatty in 1931, and concludes with a chapter entitled “The Present”, which happens to be principally an attempt to look into the future.
