    Abstract

    THIS volume claims to be “a world picture of progress in Aviation”. If the author had confined himself to that conception it would have been an interesting book of the historical record type, that should find a place in every library collection directed toward that end. The illustrations and their descriptive matter are exceptionally complete, and must be the result of a very considerable labour in collecting and collating them. The pictures themselves are discreetly chosen and well reproduced. The book fails badly when it attempts to give scientific and technical explanations in too small a compass. Compression of technical statements has led the author into both ambiguities and errors.
