About Wonders of World Aviation


Wonders of World Aviation was a weekly magazine which appeared between March and December 1938. Edited by Clarence Winchester, he was assisted by a Consulting Editor, Thomas Walley. They also used a number of experts who contributed further articles on more specialised topics.


Wonders of World Aviation appeared in 40 weekly parts from 8th March through to 6th December 1938. It covered a wide range of subjects, and was intended to be the most comprehensive contribution to the literature of aviation to date.


The complete work was designed to be bound in two hardback volumes. Others chose to retain the weekly parts with their attractive colour covers.
