Robert Taylor - Air Combat Paintings Volume I - RTV011


First published in 1987 this fine collection of Robert Taylor's aviation paintings did much to boost an already rapidly accelerating popularity, with many purchasers of this book later becoming collectors. The first part of the book is a detailed chronicle of Robert Taylor's life and artistic career, generously illustrated with plenty of pencil sketches. The second part of the book looks at his paintings. Each painting has four pages devoted to it containing a description by the artist of how it came about, how he approached it, working sketches and plenty of stories recounting the support given by famous aviators. Overall presentation is to a very high standard. Foreword is by Air Vice Marshal 'Johnnie' Johnson CB, CBE, DSO, DFC.

Condition: This is a rare first edition full size hardback book. It is the 1989 Book Club Associates reprint undertaken by arrangement with the publishers, David and Charles. The book is in very good condition with little evidence of having been handled, there is though some age-related discolouration on a number of the page edges. The cloth covered binding is tight and clean. The dust jacket is bright and clean but unfortunately has at some point been used as a writing support which has left it with quite a lot of indentations which are visible if it is held at certain angles. Overall this is a good example of this rare title.

Authors: Robert Weston and Robert Taylor.
