One Day at Kitty Hawk / The untold story of the Wright Brothers and the airplane (SIGNED TO CARD; ALS ALSO LAID IN) - signed or inscribed book

1975, ISBN: 0690001037

Hardcover, ID: 21643051091

[EAN: 9780690001037], Near Fine, [PU: Thomas Y. Crowell Co., New York], AVIATION HISTORY SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY FLIGHT AIRPLANE INVENTION AERONAUTICS AMERICANA BIOGRAPHY SIGNED INSCRIBED AUTOGRAPHED PHILATELIC FIRST DAY COVERS POSTAGE STAMPS, Technology|General, Jacket, Number line 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10, only -- the second printing. Author has dated (28 October 1978), inscribed and signed a 3X5 card which is taped to FFE. Also laid in is a signed autograph letter from the author to the previous owner, same date. Additionally laid in are two first-day covers related to the Wright Brothers, one bearing a block of four, 31-cent airmail issues stamped "First Day of Issue" and postmarked Dayton, Ohio Sep 23, 1978; the other bearing a 10-cent Air Mail stamp postmarked Kitty Hawk Dec 17, 1968 and then again marked Dec 19 Lakewood, N.J. Walsh debunks the official versions of the story (promulgated in the Orville Wright-approved Kelly biography) -- that the brothers played equal roles, or that Orville dominated. While Orville certainly deserves credit as a stout fellow who was willing to share equally in the risks of financing and actually piloting these early contraptions, the researcher, experimenter, and assiduous craftsman who should get majority credit for inventing the airplane was Wilbur Wright -- helping explain why their firm introduced no new aerodynamic breakthroughs after Wilbur's premature death. Aviation history. 305 pp. including index.

[EAN: 9780690001037], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Thomas Y. Crowell, New York], AVIATION AIRPLANES FLYING AERONAUTICS WRIGHT BROTHERS ORVILLE, Technology|General, Jacket, Xii, 305 pages, plates, cloth, DJ, very good. Signed by author. Also includes a brief note from the author. From the Amazon website review - The True Story Unvarnished: "Unlike Fred Kelly's attempt to write the sanitized "official biography" at Orville Wright's behest, John Walsh tells the real story, warts and all. It was through this book, that I learned that it was John R. McMahon who told the real story based on his revision of an original manuscript by Earl Findley. Orville had first turned to Findley to write the official Wright Brothers biography; but it was too near the truth; too personal; and he nixed the project after reading the manuscript. But the truth came out, when McMahon wrote a series of articles on the Wright Brothers in "Popular Science," January 1929. When he came to write his book, still based on the Finley manuscript, Orville protested and was able to get several passages, on threat of court action, changed in the book. For example, Orville didn't want the years Wilbur spent at home as an invalid, revealed. Orville also has himself elevated above Wilbur, as the creative driving force in the airplane's invention. If you want to investigate the real story, take the Kelly book with a grain of salt, and read instead, this excellent book by John Evangelist Walsh." ; Signed by Author
