A wonderful biographical account of the life of James Tytler who became the first person in Britain to fly by ascending in a hot air balloon. (1784) James Tytler had a tough life. A social outcast, Tytler did much hack work for low pay and rarely if ever emerged from poverty. He was constantly in debt, yet possessed a brilliance in which he was able to apply himself consistently to make amends of his gloomy disposition.
Includes monochrome images
