History is silent concerning the life and circumstances of Thomas Walker, portrait painter of Hull. His sole claims to immortality are the two editions of his pamphlet upon flying, which exhibit him as an earnest amateur with a hobby and some small conceit of himself. He fumbles with great truths : knows much, but fails to order his knowledge, and hovers on the brink of great achievements in a way that is quite exasperating. For these reasons his writings are, perhaps, the most fascinating of all those of the pioneers, and this fascination is deepened by the drawings that accompany them. In the following reprint both his editions are published together for the first time. The first edition has been reprinted several times, but never with the original illustrations, which are here given from both editions. . .
