Wright-Martin Hispano-Suiza Simplex Instruction Book, Dec., 1917

This is the companion to the previous Item # 1661. It is "Instructions for the Care and Operation of Hispano-Suiza Aeronautical Engines", Simplex, December, 1917, Series No. 3A. We just discovered these books at a local estate sale, and had to have them. It is the same size, 4 3/4" X 7 3/4", but has fewer pages, 44, and 5 fold out charts and blueprints. It precedes #1661, having been printed in 1917 instead of 1918. We do not know the relationship between these two manuals. This too has a black cloth cover with embossed gold. Condition is almost Fine, showing no signs of use. Again, these are rare books, and if you are interested in WWI aircraft, their engines, and maintenance, check out #1661, and #1662.
