Did they really think this would fly?



Item # 661597

May 9, 1885

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, May 9, 1885  Page 5 has a fascinating print of: "Ayres' New Aerial Machine" with a related article: "A New Aerial Machine" with much detail on how this machine would work. It even notes: "...illustrations shows it very clearly and we believe that a machine constructed as here represented can do its work successfully..."
Half of the ftpg. is an illustration of the: "Improved Mechanical Cotton Picker" and the balance is a lengthy article on it. Other scientific improvements & inventions throughout.
Sixteen pages, irregular along the spine, otherwise very nice.
