206 Larios, Captain Jose; Marquis of Larios, Duke of Lerma. Memoirs of a Nationalist Fighter Pilot: 1936-1939.
London: Neville Spearman Limited, n.d. First Edition. 
Octavo, blue boards (hardcover), gilt letters, [x] + 314 pp. Very Good+, with former-owner bookplate and slight rubbing to edges; in a Very Good dust jacket with light edgewear. From dust jacket: The author was a bomber and fighter pilot for Franco from the beginning to the end of the Spanish Civil War, “with the absolute conviction that we were fighting to prevent the total destruction of our Catholic faith and national traditions.” In his Fiat fighter high over the land he loved, he was involved in nearly every major battle of the lboody war, chalking up 278 missions, with six confirmed and five probable kills. He saw death strike countless friends, and he fuffered while his own sisters were imprisoned. His autobiography of the war years is immensely readable, full of stories of hair-raising combat in the air, and is lightened by grace and humour. He tells the whole story of the war, from the siege of the Alcazar of Toledo to the bittler battle of the Ebro, where the casualties of the 13th Nationalist Division alone included 78 per cent of the officers and 60 per cent of the troops. Combat Over Spain is one of the few first-hand accounts of the Civil War -- and is the only one published in England to be written from the Nationalist point of view. Whatever the political position of the reader, he cannot fail to find it immensely exciting.

From dust jacket: Royal Leonard, who has the distinction of being the youngest senior pilot in the history of America commercial aviation, writes a vigorous and colorful account of his six intense, exciting years flying for the Republic of China and of his experience as personal pilot for Generalissimo Ghiang Kai-shek. No one can tell the complete story of China's fight for freedom and of her long and heroic resistance against a brutal and aggressive invader, but Captain Leonard's story is replete with all the candid detail possible only to a man who was the only white man to know the location of every landing field, public, private, and military, in the Republic of China. In addition to the close personal contact with the Generalissimo which his job entailed, Captain Leonard was an intimate friend of General Claire Chennault whose American Volunteer Group has provided such a magnificent saga of modern aerial combat. Because of this friendship, the author is able to give us an inside report of the outstanding achievements of this gallant and most incredible fighting force...

220 Ludovici, L. J. The Challenging Sky: The Life of Sir Alliott Verdon-Roe.
London: Herbert Jenkins Ltd., (1956). 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 158 pp. Near-Fine, with former-owner bookplate, in a Very Good+ dust jacket with lightly rubbed edges. From dust jacket: If he had done nothing else A. V. Roe would have been assured of a place in history as the first man in Britain to fly in a heavier-than-air machine. That was in 2908. In the years that followed his work and achievements in the field of acronautics were such as to establish his name securely in the forefront of the great pioneers of aviation. Two symbols, widely seperated in years, yet each a miracle of its time, today bear witness to his genius. The first is the flying machine in which he first flew (exhibited in the Science Museum, London), and the second is to be seen in the elegant, up-to-the-,inute, jet-powered Princess flying boatrs designed and built by the firm which bears his name.
