The Wright Brothers from Bicycle to Biplane; An illustrated history of the Wright Brothers. Fred C. Fisk, Marlin W. Todd.
Self published? 2003. The 100th Anniversary of Flight Edition 1903-2003. Wraps. 128 pages. Illustrations. Map. Foreword by Yvonne Wright Miller. Bibliography. Photo Credits. Printed by Miami Graphics Services, Inc., West Milton, Ohio. Signed on title page by Fred C. Fisk (co-author Marlin Todd died in 1992 and thus did not have an opportunity to sign this book). Cover has some wear and soiling, and sticker residue at back cover. Previously copyrighted in 1995. Most historians would agree that the Wright brothers would be on a list of the 100 greatest men who ever lived. They and their invention of the aeroplane have touched the lives of every living person on this earth. It is very surprising to most people that these two men came out of a very ordinary neighborhood, had an ordinary education, and lived in a home of modest means on the west side of Dayton, Ohio. The Wright brothers had three businesses in their life time ? printing, bicycle, and the aeroplane business.
