This is the rare third edition of this Putnam. The photographs and illustrations have been completely revised, with many entirely new views and improved prints of those previously published, together with a considerable number of minor amendments and additions to the text.
The book is a complete study of the development and service history of the R-Planes, full details and career of every aeroplane built, as well as information on uncompleted projects.
Here is the full story of their operations over England and on the Eastern Front, the weight of bombs dropped, the casualties suffered, and the names of the pilots. The second revised and expanded edition included additional information on construction, combat service and future projects.
The price-clipped dust wrapper is in vg+ condition, clean and fresh, with very slight bumping to the top extremities, a crease to the laminate down the side of the spine and light handling marks.
The binding is tight.
Internally, the content is clean and unmarked and in fine condition.
A very nice copy indeed.
