Condition: NEWFOUNDLAND AIRMAIL 1919 - 1939 [updated 1984]
Newfoundland Air Mail, 1919 - 1939 This volume, first published in 1953, revises a work by the noted British philatelist Cyril H.C Harmer. This 1984 final REVISION contains 181 pages dealing with the pioneering attempts to across the Atlantic from Newfoundland, starting with the 1919 attempt by Hawker and Mackenzie-Grieve, and continuing up to the start of World War 11. Both the successful flights and failures are chronicled in detail. There are ample illustrations documents, correspondence relating to the postal aspects of the flight and the flown mail. Newfoundland has been a most interesting area for aerophilatelic study for many years and this book provides a ready source of reference material about that small, but well known transatlantic "jumping-off" point.
