Robert Taylor - Air Combat Paintings Volume I - RTV1002


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 second reprint from 1989 (the book was first published in 1987). It is a full size hardback book. The book is in very good condition with little evidence of having been handled, there is though some natural age-related discolouration on the page edges. The cloth covered binding is tight and clean. The dust jacket is bright and clean with surprisingly little evidence of handling given its age - the price has been clipped. Overall this is a good example of this popular title.

Authors: Robert Weston and Robert Taylor.
