I bought a copy of the Schlaifer/Heron classic ("Development of Aircraft Engines"/"Development of Aviation Fuels") that appears to be a reprint. Can anyone who owns an original tell me whether it contained any plates (illustrations)? My copy doesn't, and from reading a few score of pages, there aren't any references to them.

Fascinating reading BTW!

The edition I have, copyrighted and published in 1950, has only one illustration, and that is the Harvard Shield on the title page. I am not counting the molecular diagrams of hydrocarbons and anti-knock compounds in Technical Appendix B.

We have the 1950 editon, which apears to be the first edition. There are no plates but there are molecular diagrams dealing with fuel in Appendex B.

I recently bought the CD version of this book and printed it out - what an excellent book! I can't understand why it hasn't been re-printed, (well maybe it has??). I haven't read Herons section on fuels yet, but the Schlaifer engine part is very well written and interesting all the way.
