By: N/A

Price: $300.00

Publisher: Salem, Oregon, The Oregon State Board of Aeronautics: 1949-1955

Edition: First Edition

Includes 10 issues from the first two volumes, then a straight run from volume 3, no. 1 to vol. 7, no. 12. The first two volumes are 8 1/2x11, 4 pages, the rest are half that size, 6 to 10 pages. A very scarce bit of Northwest aviation history. First two volumes are punched for a three ring binder, the rest have gummed tabs applied, for the same purpose. Should be removeable if you wish, as they are water based, and a damp sponge will remove them. I've never seen another... View more info

Light soil to the covers, old crease at the upper right corner. Unfortunately, previous idiot owner stamped his name & silly symbol on the second page (the revision page) , happily not on the title page. You wonder why someone who collects aviation books would do such a stupid, stupid thing. Doesn't really hurt the book much, but it is still really dumb. Ticks me off (can you tell? ).

Rubbing and chipping to the spines & edges. Contents are very good. Volume 1, no. 1 has a small tear at the top of the last 3 pages.

I can't tell if the card covers are original to the book, but they appear to be. A couple of stamps, a barcode, and a bookplate inside the front cover are the extent of the xlib markings. There is a bit of rubbing to the edges of the card covers. The book is not paginated sequentially, but is just over 1/2" thick. Mimeographed on coarse paper. An organizational chart on blueprint paper (dated March 30th, 1926) is in a pocket in the back. Only a few pictures, but give... View more info
