1 Anderson, Fred Northrop : An Aeronautical History (A Commemorative Book Edition of Airplane Designs And Concepts)
CA Northrop Corporation 1976 
Fine in Fine Slipcase. Fully bound in brown leatherette. Both the spine and the decorative front board are stamped in gold. Quarto. Tan endpapers. 290pps., with numerous illustrations. No dustjacket, as issued. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The matching slipcase of gold-stamped brown leatherette is, also, essentially as new.

"...This book relates the story of Northrop aeronautical products from the year 1939 to the current Bicentennial year 1976. The early aircraft designs -- always fresh, always challenging -- set a standard for a company tradition of engineering excellence and high performance.
The roots of the Northrop company lie in the early days of aviation and, not surprisingly, in the beginnings of several other aircraft companies. The Northrop story is in part the story of the design genius of John K. Northrop. It is also the story of a closely-knit group of aeronautical romantics who followed Northrop when he founded this last company to bear his name..."
