Air Enthusiast; Number 10. William Green, Gordon Swanborough.
London: Fine Scroll, Limited, 1979. Presumed First Edition, First printing of this issue. Magazine. 28 cm, 80 pages. Illustrations (some color). Diagrams. Index. Cover has some wear and soiling.

Air Enthusiast was illustrated with colour and black-and-white photos, diagrams, profiles and three-view drawings. Earlier issues featured cutaway drawings, but these were dropped. The articles provided detail for varieties of aircraft and events.

The magazine ceased publishing with issue #131, September/October 2007.

The National Geographic Society and its Magazine. Gilbert Grosvenor.
Washington DC: The National Geographic Society, 1936. Limited Edition, Number 128 of 1000. First Edition publication copyright is 1936. Wraps. [2], 42, [4] pages. Black and White illustrations. Cover has some wear and soiling. Minor edge tears. Minor page soiling/discoloration. Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor (October 28, 1875 – February 4, 1966), father of photojournalism, was the first full-time editor of National Geographic Magazine (1899-1954). Grosvenor is credited with having built the magazine into the iconic publication that it is today. As President of the National Geographic Society, he assisted its rise to one of the world's largest and best known science and learning organizations, aided by the chronicling in its magazine of ambitious natural and cultural explorations around the globe. Grosvenor was hired in 1899 as the first full-time employee of the National Geographic Society by Alexander Graham Bell, the Society's President at the time. He eventually was named Director, and later President of the Society, and remained Editor of the magazine until 1954. Grosvenor advocated policies of neutrality and positive, upbeat journalism through two world wars, the Great Depression, and the beginning of the Cold War. This style was seen as innovative in the opening years of the 20th century. However, by the 1950s, Grosvenor's style was criticized as being ossified and dated. He and his staff (most of whom were in their late 60s and 70s) were criticized as being conservative, complacent, and unwilling to modernize, and the National Geographic's subscription base fell as a consequence. After 50 years at the helm, he stepped down in 1954 at the age of 78.
