Subtitled ‘The Conquest of the Air in Story and Picture’. A complete set comprised 40 editions + Index (not the 45 editions mentioned on the cover of Part 1). Published weekly from March 1938 onwards. About 30 pages in each issue. The editorial contents covered a wide range of topics, from how an aeroplane flies, to parachuting to features on specific aircraft types. It was full of excellent illustrations in the old high quality printing style, with double page spreads that show rivet size detail, typical of the old large format cameras. Each issue included rare colour illustrations. Edited by Clarence Winchester.

One thought on “Wonders of World Aviation

  1. I have volumes one and two of the Wonders of World Aviation. Both in excellent condition. Each book is protected by a plastic covering. What would be their value in Australian currency. Thank you
