About This Item

New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1931. Octavo, [viii], 282 pp., frontispiece and 15 photo plates. Quarter crushed crimson marocco with gilt gilt spine ornament, bookplate of Myron Carlson. Boards a bit scuffed at the corners, occasional moderate foxing, an attractive copy. Number 42 in a limited edition of 215 copies; with limitation statement noting 'of these, none are for sale'.

Anton Herman Gerard 'Anthony' Fokker was a Dutch aviation pioneer and aircraft manufacturer. He is famous for the fighter aircraft he produced in Germany during the First World War. The treaty of Versailles forbade Germany to produce airplanes and Fokker moved his aircraft business to the Netherlands. There, his company produced aircraft including the highly successful Fokker Trimotor passenger aircraft. Later biographers suggest he was charismatic but unscrupulous in business. Noffsinger 861 (revised edition); not in Myron Smith. Ex-libris Myron Carlson.
