Kitecraft - Aeroplanes, Balloons, Gliders & Kites   3025
Kitecraft and Kite Tournaments, Charles M. Miller (1911): A reprint of the original, 1911 first edition of Charles M. Miller's book. This isn't a subject that one sees very often from this early period. It was published a mere 7 years after the Wright Brothers first powered flight! This Manual Arts book discusses model aeroplanes, hot air balloons, gliders and kites with many designs that are definitely inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement. The rubber band powered model airplanes are pretty interesting and there are even geared ones that can use multiple strands of rubber for longer flights. Hot air balloons are described as well as gliders. This is quite an enjoyable and instructive book and is quite scarce. Soft cover, 6" x 8", 144 page perfect bound book is printed on smooth, heavyweight paper to best display the many diagrams and illustrations.
