They're reasonably inexpensive and from Crowood which usually means a pretty workman like job if not outstanding. The descriptions are brief and for many aircraft there is no illustration. I was disappointed to say the least.

No matter where you look in the annals of aviation history, it is littered with strange and wonderful aircraft, many of which were evolutionary dead ends. This is the first of a two-volume set (Vol. 2 is Experimental Aircraft Since 1945, ISBN 978 1 8) written by an ex-RAF engineer with many competent aviation titles to his name. This is a worthy and important subject and as there already exists a commensurately large body of literature, it is not easy to assign these two slender books their proper place in the larger scheme of things.

The world of experimental and prototype aircraft throws up many interesting and unusual machines, and the aircraft manufacturers of the USA were no exception. Within a few years of the Wright Brother's first flight in 1903, World War I greatly accelerated the development of aircraft as the fighting machines of all sides were pushed to the limits to gain more speed, altitude and firepower. This book, the first of a two-volume history of the USA's 'X' and 'Y' experimental planes from the earliest years of aviation to the present day, covers the period from the Wright Brothers to the end of World War Two. As well as famous names such as Curtiss, Northrop and Boeing, many long-forgotten manufacturers such as Loening and Thomas-Morse appear in these pages. The detailed text, supported by extensive illustrations throughout, gives a fascinating insight into an often-overlooked area of aviation history.

When I received this kind of books I felt kind of cheated. The book itself has two volumes when it should be just one single book given the amount of pages and information. Obviously it is a better business for the publishers to sell two books instead of one. In that way a book than can be sold for $50 became two books that can be sold at $35 each.
It is hard to believe that a book introducing experimental and prototype aircrafts doesn't count with a single three views drawing of any of them, just pictures.

Great book!

Volume I is an excellent preview and addition to Volume II (also reviewed). While much of the information, as in Volume II, is contained in other works, this Volume contains much new, previously unpublished, historical information.
My opinion: well-worth the cost; as in Volunme II for the serious collector.

There are indeed many books on "X" planes , the key here is there aren't many on the "Y" planes or for that mater the
"XF" and "XB" planes. The "X" planes being totally experimental and unlike the "Y&X" planes covered in this book and it;s follow on volume .
The photos and text cover the material very well. There are gaps in the aircraft covered , but all in all I found the book very good in the coverage of the subject.

There are a couple of books here at Amazon that are a better value than this book that cover this topic. They are much more thorough, have more images, and are larger in physical size. Many of the planes described in this book are not even pictured.
