Abstract

Although the job as librarian of the Royal Aeronautical Society is relatively simple, one does have so many different types of client. It would be difficult to find another library in which modern science and history are such close bedfellows. The history of aeronautics seems to fascinate more people than any other subject known to the writer. Hardly a week goes by without an inquiry that involves chasing through dusty volumes of old journals or the standard works of aeronautical history.
