About This Item

New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1931. Special Edition. Octavo, [iix], 282 pp., 15 photo plates; mild rubbing to spine and leather corners, gilt imprint on cloth in good condition, ex libris glued to marbled front endpaper, some foxing to preliminary leaves, leaves uncut, fine copy in 3/4 red leather and red cloth.
Number 42 in limited edition of 215 copies. States that "Of these, none are for sale". Supposed to have been signed by the author, but signature not present. 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.
