Dorset, a county of outstanding natural beauty, can rightly lay claim to another exceptional feature - its aeronautical heritage. Some purists would say that such a claim owes much to the county boundary changes that, in 1974, brought significant parts of Hampshire into Dorset\'s fold. To a new generation however this distinction borders on theacademic and a look at the broader course of history reveals that such changes always will take take place. These is no doubt that Bournemouth and its immediate environs have contributed greatly to the county\'s aviationhistory and the manyprevioiusly unpublished images of this major centre and of other locations throughout the region within In Dorset\'s Skies provide a fascinating overview of Dorset\'s aerial heritage.

The Images of Aviation Series is a series of individual books that takes the reader through a comprehensive photographic journey of American aeronautical history beginning in the early 1900s. By the late 1920s worldwide civil aviation was moving from being a public curiosity to a practical means of transport and recreation. World War I was the catalyst for technological advancement. The Golden Age of Aviation saw continued progress leading to aircraft for World War II. The books take the reader through postwar aircraft progression on into the Jet Age. These fascinating books chart the years and decades using a sequence of carefully annotated photographs. Most have not been previously published. Books include factory photos, and provides for a most informative overview. EACH BOOK: 128 pgs, SB, 6.5 x 9.25, 200+ photos. $18.99
