“Knights of the Air” by Lester J. Maitland, New York, 1929. A heavily illustrated history of the development of early airplanes. The book is signed on the endpaper by Maitland, and below that Franklin D Roosevelt has written “given me by Peter Brady / October 1929 / Franklin D. Roosevelt”. There is slight water staining of the book and the blue cloth front cover shows some discoloration at the edge of the spine.
Housed in a red quarter leather fall back box. A fine example of the type of subject that Franklin D Roosevelt had in his personal library.
