The Smithsonian lists the following in it's archives:

Caunter, C. F., Collection, Acc. 1988-0073

1 cubic foot
Cyril Francis Caunter (1899-?) was an author, historian, and curator at the Science Museum, London, England. Caunter published a number of works on the development of light internal combustion engines for automotive and aeronautical use.
Contents: files relating to Caunter's final book "Rotary Aero Engines, 1900-1918" (unpublished). Manuscripts of the book, correspondence and research relating to the book, and documents regarding the attempt by Robert Meyer, Curator of Propulsion at the National Air and Space Museum, to have the book published by the Smithsonian Press.

Has any member seen this material? What was the reason for the book not being published?
