Glider Mail: An Aerophilatelic Handbook
by Simine Short.
This 262 page descriptive catalogue is arranged in four sections to aid in the further study of glider mail. The most extensive section, a detailed compilation of glider mail flights in 220 pages, lists all reported glider mail events from 1922 through 1986, including historical flight accounts and philatelic treatment of mail. The listings cover 34 countries, with 25 outline maps showing the approximate locations of most events listed. More than 400 envelopes and cards, plus about 300 postmarks and vignettes, are reproduced throughout the more than 1,000 listings. The handbook’s final pages are a chronological cross-index and checklist.
