Aviation: The Early Years book chronicles the first years of manpowered flight in photographs, from the end of the 19th century to the era of the great Zeppelins and shows us in numerous marvellous pictures the story of the pioneers and adventurers who extended the boundaries of human achievement.
Within the space of a few years at the turn of the 20th century the world shrank.
Vast distances were traversed by air, technology raced ahead and whole new concepts of human activity became possible. It was a time of high excitement and experimentation – and from the start of the pioneering days of aviation, the camera recorded it.
