Aldershot (UK). Gale & Polden for Hawker Ltd., No date. Ca. 1927.
Booklet, 9 1/2 x 6 inches, 10 pages (plus one unnumbered page) picturing and describing the Hawker line of metal-body aircraft. Tipped-in photo to front cover. Metal staples rusted, thus booklet is loose in stiff card covers. Light soiling to covers. Eight examples of Hawker military aircraft are pictured and described, as well as photos and descriptions of component parts of aircraft, including "Portion of Fuselage in Course of Construction." The caption to a photo of the Hawker Cygnet provides the date 1926. Also included with the booklet are two sepia photos, 9.5 x 6 inches, featuring the Hawker Horsley and Hawker Hart, credited to the publication Flight. Military Aircraft of All Types is a scarce ephemeral publication; WorldCat lists only one library holding (Auburn University, Alabama). Item #49845
