An Ancient Air: A Biography of John Stringfellow of Chard, the Victorian Aeronautical Pioneer by Harald Penrose (£9.50)Publisher: Airlife — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9781840371840]Condition: Near Fine.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “An Ancient Air portrays the hitherto only briefly recorded life of John Stringfellow of Chard (1799-1883), the first man in the world to demonstrate that engine-powered winged flight was practicable.

Whereas earlier general aviation histories tend to discount Stringfellow’s work, An Ancient Air reveals that his absorption with aviation was lifelong, starting with the construction of balloons, recorded here for the first time. Though professionally a lace-machine specialist, he was interested in all aspects of scientific development — he was a founder member of the Chard Institution for educational lectures, pioneered local photography, devised medical apparatus and even patented an armoured gun-carriage.

This book seeks to demonstrate the relationship of Stringfellow’s work with that of his colleague, William Samuel Henson. They worked closely together on various aeronautical projects between the years 1835 and 1847, and the author puts forward evidence that it was Stringfellow who was entirely responsible for the historic 1848 monoplane, the first ever engine-driven model aeroplane to make a free flight. After Henson emigrated to the USA in 1848, Stringfellow continued to design revolutionary aeroplane models, such as the triplane he entered in the the 1868 Crystal Palace Exhibition.

In his old age Stringfellow maintained his interest in aviation and passed on his enthusiasm to his son, Frederick John Stringfellow, who later built a model biplane and a multi-plane.

An Ancient Air, meticulously researched by Harald Penrose, an acknowledged authority on aviation history, presents for the first time a detailed account of Stringfellow’s historic discoveries and sheds further welcome light on the pioneering days of aviation.”

Nutrition in Nursing The New Approach: A Handbook of Nursing Science by Lynn Fraley; Betty Kamen; (£9.50)Publisher: Keats — 1987Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0879833874]Condition: Poor. A copy for reading rather than admiring, generally shabby but text complete and acceptable. Notably rubbed at the outside edges of the covers and spine. Upper wrapper slighty curled, both wrappers have light creasing. Light reading creases to the somewhat faded spine. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “Physicians direct the course of medical treatment, but it is the nurses who are in constant contact with the patient and whose care and professional skill most directly affect the course of recovery. Now there is a new dimension to nursing, profoundly influencing not only the patient’s fight with illness but his or her lifetime health — nutrition.

Whatever the medication or treatment, optimum nutrition will enhance it, strengthening the immune system to resist disease and fortifying the body against the stress of surgery or injury, and sustaining the patient through the debilitating experience of illness. An outstanding nutritional educator and an experienced nurse and teacher present in this book the essentials of nutrition and how it applies to nursing patients — including a clear-sighted examination of the “political” and professional considerations necessary in applying this knowledge in settings where it is new.

Deeply informed and informative, Nutrition in Nursing is a landmark book and a means of enlarging the scope of the most intimately involved of the health professions.”
