Published in 1989 and authored by J M Bruce,this unique monograph of 28 pages-plus covers-details the Type L Moranes from their introduction in 1913 to the second year of WWI. It's second claim to fame was in being the first victor against a Zeppelin in mid- air when Sub.Lt. Rex Warneford shot down the Army vessel LZ 37 over Ghent, Belgium on 7 June 1915. For this feat,the young RNAS pilot was awarded the VC some days later. Jack's photo collection for this book includes over ten photos of the iconic monoplane,together with 25 archive images of other Moranes in British and Russian service. As well as some rare close-up shots,there are seven photos of the Pfalz licence-built version,the A.I and A.II. Ian Stair supplies the 1:48 and 1:72 scale plans whilst Ray Rimell contributes colour notes and three rear cover profiles including Garros' historic machine with its Hotchkiss gun.Two copies in good condition with slight corner creasing.
