Airways [a picture book account of a journey from England to New York]

[London, circa 1920] (with 'Made in Germany' printed on the front cover).

200 × 397 mm, [14] pages (including the inside surfaces of both covers) with 4 full-page colour illustrations, 2 full-page illustrations in pink and black, and 8 half-page illustrations in pink.

Quarter cloth with a colour pictorial front cover in an appealing die-cut airship design; covers a little marked, rubbed around the edges, and slightly worn at the bottom corners; rear cover lightly tidemarked; child's birthday gift inscription dated 1930 inside the front cover; a very good copy.

The ultimate fictitious voyage: the R37 was almost completed when production was cancelled in February 1921, and it was dismantled later that year.
