[Cover Title]: Modern Searchlights. [Interior title]: Anti-Aircraft Searchlight Equipment

Croydon: The London Electric Firm, [1920].

Price: $2,500.00

Softcover. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 12". [38]pp. Cord tied printed flexible card wrappers. Light stains on the wrappers, one leaf has pulled loose, else near fine. Trade catalog for nautical, ground, and aviation searchlights. On the rectos of each leaf is a large photograph in color of a searchlight (on a few pages two photographs appear; one photo is uncolored) with a printed description of the searchlight on the facing page. Colorful and engaging. Rare. *OCLC* locates a single copy at the Henry Ford Museum, that is almost certainly the same or similar to this with 19 pages (we assume they mean leaves) and attributes the date of 1920. Although this copy is undated that seems a reasonable guess.
