Description

PREFACE
In collecting the material for this book, which seeks to convey some impression of the romance and adventure that have ever characterised research and experiment in serial navigation, I have been assisted by many people. And I desire to acknowledge the kindness of Messrs. Wilbur and Orville Wright, who assisted me in chapters XVII, XVIII and XIX by giving me permissions to use certain material that was published first in America, and who also guided me in the selection of other matter relating to their work. Also, I am under an obligation to the various publishers for permission to make extracts from My Airships, by Santos - Dumont ( London : Mr. Grant Richards ; New York : The Century Company ) ; The Aviator's Companion, by Messrs. Farman ( Messrs. Mills & Boon ) ; and Andrée and his Balloon, by Lachambre and Machuron ( Messrs. Constable ). The diagrams on pages 24,46, an 48 were lent by the Aeronautical Society, and the diagrams on pages 226 and 227 by Messrs. Longman, Green & Co.

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Charles C. Turner

Charles Cyril Turner ( April 30th, 1870 - December 7th, 1952 ) was born in Brighton ( Brighton and Hove, East Sussex, England ). He was listed as journalist and aviator. Most of his early journalism and books dealt with aeronautical issues. He then served during the First World War, and rose to the rank of Major. In later years, he specialized in crime adventures, often for adults. Charles C. Turner wrote 38 books about aviation, such as Aerial navigation of today : a popular account of the evolution of aeronautics ( 1910 ), The old flying days ( 1912 ), The struggle in the air, 1914 - 1918 ( 1919 ) and How the air force defends us ( 1940 ).
