Airships in Pictures - An Illustrated History 1784 - 1998"
Patrick Abbott and Nick Walmsley
ISBN:1 899863 48 6
PAGES: h/b; 112pp; Over 100 b&w illustrations,
many never before published
pictorial history, from the bizarre 'flights of fancy' of the
nineteenth century through the heyday of later years. The celebration
of a great British success story, this book describes the development
and use of the British airship in peacetime and in war. It is
often forgotten that Britain built more 'blimps' than any country
except the USA, and that she build more rigid airships than any
country except Germany. The illustrations, many of which are previously
unpublished, have been carefully selected to complement the detailed
chronology of the text.
Abbott, an established author in this field, has collaborated
with aeronautical artist Nick Walmsley to provide an authoritative
work based on years of research.
