W. Starling Burgess, Inventor, Naval Architect, Poet, Aviation Pioneer

Fully illustrated biography of an authentic American polymath. After launching his career as a yacht designer, Burgess built the first airplane to fly in New England (1910) and was selected as the sole manufacturer of aircraft under the Wright Brothers' patents. His company was a primary supplier of both civilian and military aircraft before the main factory in Marblehead burned to the ground in 1918.

After World War I, Burgess returned to his first love, yacht design, drafting the lines for three successive Gloucester fishing schooners to compete against Canadian entries for the International Fishermen's Trophy—and in 1924 introduced the staysail rig on the all-but-unbeatable schooner yacht Advance. He later designed the three acclaimed America's Cup-winners: the J-Class sloops Enterprise(1930), Rainbow(1934), and Ranger(1937). In 1933, he collaborated with R. Buckminster Fuller to design and create the revolutionary Dymaxion automobile.

And yes, this book has achieved collector status, and these are new, not previously purchased books, and sold as non-returnable.
