A collectors' item and reference tool
This volume is a facsimile reprint of the 1913
edition of Jane's All the World's Aircraft. It is
complete in all its original detail, including the
advertisements.
By 1913 the aviation scene had just begun
to consolidate and the names which were to
adorn the industry of the future had begun to
emerge—Bristol, Handley Page, De Havilland,
Short, Breguet, Curtiss, Fokker. The proto-
types of some of the famous aeroplanes which
were a positive, if not a decisive influence
upon the course of the First World War, also
are described in this volume—Avro, Sopwith,
Farman, Voisin, Albatros, Taube. With a view-
point no doubt clouded by growing accept-
ance of the coming clash with Germany,
editorial opinion inclined to the view that
'Except as a war machine the aeroplane is of
little interest or use to anyone'. A civil role
was not envisaged, although the embryonic
aviation industry was already thinking in terms
of aeroplanes large enough to carry great
loads and to travel long distances. Even the
airship was assigned a potential military use,
and by 1913 the Zeppelin was already part of
the German war machine.
As a matter of sheer necessity the War
forced the aeroplane to grow up; that is in the
technical sense. In 1913 airframes were
already shaping towards the configuration
familiar in the First World War, and still
familiar even in some planes flying at the
beginning of the Second: the section of his-
torical aircraft in this volume will show the
enormous progress made in this respect. And
planes were already flying with motors
destined from the drawing board for aircraft
alone.
This reprint will satisfy the desire of many
people interested in the history of aviation
who have been unable to obtain a copy of one
of the extremely scarce early issues.
This is one of a number of reprints of early.
Jane's. This is shortly to be followed by the
first (1909) edition of Jane's All the World's
Aircraft, and later also by the 1919 edition.
The 1914 edition of Jane's Fighting Ships has
already been published at 8 gns, and a reprint
of the first edition (1898) is in preparation.

David & Charles Reprints cover all branches
of transport and commerce. Another valuable
source book is Bradshaw's Railway Guide,
whose August 1887 and April 1910 editions
have been reprinted as representative of two
different railway eras in Britain and Ireland.
