Description

Aviation Book
The current revival of experiments with hot air balloons make topical this first biography of the pioneer British aeronaut, James Tytler (1745-1804), know to his contemporaries, more in derision than expect, as Balloon Tytler, who made the first manned balloon ascent in Great Britain in Edimburgh on 27th August 1784.
This feat, however, was only an episode in a long, versatile and generaly unsuccessful career.
Sir James Fergusson of Kilkerran, is a Scottish author. Sir James Fergusson's knowledge of record sources and ability to make such skilful use of the mis coupled to an ability to write prose which speaks out: his book are at once erudite and humane, coping equally well with macabre and with humorous stories revived from Scotland's teeming past.
