This auction is for a vintage U.S. Air Force military manual titled "Aircraft Recognition for the Ground Observer", their manual number 355-10, circa 1955--the early Cold War era. The manual was "published for the information and guidance of the volunteer civilian ground observers in the United State and Canada. It provides a description of their duties and responsibilities, and pertinent aircraft recognition material"; packed with information on the "various markings, insignia and symbols used on military and civilian aircraft that are most likely to be observed over Canada and the United States. Illustrations and data are furnished for the various types of aircraft pertinent to the Ground Observer Corps.", over 110+ pages of actual aircraft photos (black and white) with a short color diagram section of commercial airliners. The manual is roughly 6.5" x 9.75" with 172 pages from a first edition print run of 768,000 copies, the bulk of which were distributed to the Air Defense Command; stiff "leatherette"cover is bound with metal rivet type screws; it appears complete and fully intact, interior is clean with little signs of use, no writing or markings found; front cover has some type of rust or staining that did not come off with slightly damp cloth, did not try any other cleaning methods. See our current listings for other vintage military manuals, along with a wide variety of other vintage to antique items--we are always happy to combine shipping!
