99 BOWERS, Peter M. Curtiss Aircraft 1907-1947.
Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, MD, 1988, ISBN:0870211528 
BOWERS, Peter M. Curtiss Aircraft 1907-1947. (Annapplis, MD) : Naval Institute Press, (1988). Second Printing. Pp (6),1-636,(2). Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “This important book is a complete history of the pioneer work of Glenn Curtiss and of the subsequent companies which bore his name. Glenn Curtiss was involved in some of the earliest practical flying experiments with gliders and powered aircraft. Before the First World War he had built the America flying-boat, which was sold to Britain and led to the Royal Naval Air Service's family of Felixstowe patrol flying-boats, the NC-4, which, in May 1919, made the first ever aerial crossing of the North Atlantic. Many thousands of First World War pilots learned to flyon the Curtiss JN Jenny, and this famous aircraft was to live on for many years mainly in the hands of the barnstormers – the men who toured the United States giving exhibitions and joyrides. [...] During the Second World War Curtiss aircraft were used by US, British, French and other services. There was a range of single-seat fighters including the P-36, Tomahawk and Kittyhawk; there were naval types such as the SBC and SB2C Helldivers, the Seagull, Seamew and Seahawk; there were large numbers of C-46 Commando transports, many of them still flying; and there were the little-known C-76 all-wood Caravan. All these aircraft and many others, including projects and prototypes, are described and illustrated with a large number of photographs and general-arrangement drawings.” - from the dj.
