A History, 1782-1900Book - 2011
"This book chronicles not only the development and advances in hot air ballooning but provides insights into the people who developed the sport--many of whom lost their lives in the process. The book concludes at the beginning of the 20th century, when the age of the airplane rendered hot air balloons all but obsolete for nonrecreational applications"--
