Concorde. F. G. Clark, Arthur Gibson.
New York: Crescent Books, 1975. First Printing [Stated] of this edition. Hardcover. 64 pages. Illustrations (most in color). Diagrams. Technical Specifications. Production Manufacture Breakdown. Minor wear and soiling to cover and some page discolortion. This is the first detailed and first-hand account of the most ambitious civil aircraft project ever undertaken -- the design, development and manufacture jointly by Britain and France of the Concorde supersonic airliners. F> G. Clark, who wrote the text, and Arthur Gibson, who took the great majority of the photographs which illustrate it, form a team uniquely qualified to present the story of the Concorde. Both have been involved with the project since its inception, Mr. Clarke as a member of the staff of British Aircraft Corporation and, before that, Bristol aircraft Ltd., and Mr. Gibson as a consultant designer to BAS and Britain's leading aviation photographer. Both have travelled widely in connection with Concorde's overseas demonstration tours to many different parts of the world. Their book will surely rank as the authoritative 'biography" of one of the most beautiful and exciting aircraft the world has seen.
