By: Derek N. James


If the saying one volunteer is worth two pressed men is true, then the Bristish Admiralty was doubly fortunate when, in 1915, Percival and Ernest Petter, twin sons of a Yeovil ironmonger, colunteered their entire oil engine factory to the nation to make military equipment for the First Wrld Wat. The Royal Navy wanted seaplanes so the Petter factory made seaplanes a far cry from the ironmongers shop that formed the companys roots.

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
