Seaplanes of Bocche

I have been researching Austro Hungarian Naval Aviation, especially flying boats built by Hansa Brandenburg and Lohner. I found a book called "Seaplanes of Bocche" and am Interested in buying it. However I can't find it for sale anywhere, I understand it is sold out so I am interested in buying it used or preowned. If anyone can help me get my hands on this book I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Arrow Useless search engines...

Hello "Von Banfeild"

I tried to look for the book with the help of two search engines, using the words "Seaplane of Bocche". Unfortunately, I got no positive results.

I tried a third one and there I finally found a mention of the book you are looking for, but it was not via "Google".

So much for reliability...

You may be able to download a .pdf copy at

https://www.scribd.com/document/2529...e-Sample-Pages

but you would have to take out a monthly subscription (which can be cancelled at any time).

Still, £10.99, or its equivalent in Euros, looks to be a bargain if the whole book is available.

Thanks for looking! I just got back from vacation and so many people helped me in my search! I think that I will try the PDF copy and then maybe get a paper copy. Thanks for the help!

Quick question, do any of you know if the Aviation Book Shop delivers to the U.S?

Bonjour mon ami

I have a copy of that book, Seaplanes of Bocche, and it is excellent. I continue to receive information from the author, Boris Ciglić, on occasion about upcoming projects. The email address used is [email protected] ; if still current you may be able to use that to obtain an copy ... you will not be disappointed if successful.

Bonne chance!
K.
