The Last Flight of the Luftwaffe

By Weir, Adrian

London/NY: Arms and Armour//Cassell/ Sterling, 1997. Book. Fine. Hardcover. 5th or later Edition. From the cover/title-page "The fate of Schulungslehrgang Elbe, 7 April 1945". Hardcover in splendid shape. Bright, crisp, unmarked. Jacket has mild edgewear, basically newish. We will be putting it in a new mylar wrapper. Edition elusive, says A&A imprint of Cassell, dist Sterling in US, unpriced jacket with what I take to be the publishers label (in $) back panel. Does not seem to be a Book Club version. It seems likely to be the 1st, but is not FP(per McBrides), however there are no additional printings listed. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

By Thorpe, Donald W.

fallbrook, CA: Aero, 1968. Book. Good+. Soft cover. 5th or later Edition. A lightly used approx. 7 x 11" trade paperback. Some minor cover roll and tip/edge wear especially bottom front. Loosely laid in (surely by Aero) is "official color chart for the J.A.A.F.". Some very mild smudge, no marking. All this said, book essentially sound, binding tight, text complete. Given that ISBN is listed it must be later than 1968, but 1968 is only date present. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

Crop Dusters

By Rasmussen, Henry

Osceola WI: Motorbooks International, 1986. Book. Very Good-. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Interesting copy, unpriced jacket, no debosssing mark, 128 pages. Sub-title,"Props in the Crops." We presume it to be a publishers copy as it does not seem ever to have been book clubbed. Further, as our reference does not give system of "first" identification for this house, our edition assertion could be in error. Copyright page states "First Published in 1986 by etc." with no later or additional printings noted. The jacket was mylar wrapped and taped to the exterior boards. The exterior boards have the mild tape residue areas, and is otherwise quite sharp, clean and straight. Jacket cleaned up beautifully, no tape residue, no tears or soiling, in new mylar wrapper. Domestic priority box USPS recommended. Overseas shipping will be very pricey as the 9 1/2" x 9 1/2" book can not ship in flat rate envelope. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.
