1st edition hardcover in unclipped dj showing some rubbing at tips including one at the lower tip of frt fore-edge colored in with pen, now in new mylar and looks very good. Faint moisture mark on foot of frt cover, no marks or damage inside at all. Nice coffee table volume for any fan of sky travel. An unfolding drama of success and failure, of the excitement of inventors at work on their creations, of the lure and lust for faster, lighter, stronger airplanes, The Leading Edge is a truly remarkable history of the new ideas in aviation technology and the gains we have realized because of them written by the director of the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian, DC. Illustrated throughout with striking and evocative photographs - most in full color and many never before published - by some of the country's leading photographers and from collections across the globe.
