From Wikipedia: "On the morning of January 21, 1976, two Concordes, one each from British Airways and Air France, took off simultaneously on what would be the aircraft's first commercial supersonic flights with fare paying passengers."

    The publicity information sheets consist of seven 8.5x11 inch sheets, single stapled together at the upper left corner, first page on Concorde letterhead, printed on one side only. The sheets are dated November 19,1974. The first page begins with "CONCORDE VISITS PACIFIC NORTHWEST FOR ICING TRIALS". The sheets also include information on areas of concern for both cities and airports: Sonic Boom, Airport Noise, Engine Emissions, etc. Clearly these are meant to promote the Concorde..

    There are SIX large 12x16 inch printed color photographs, printed on glossy heavy-weight paper. Each has a caption at the bottom. (1) Concorde - on cold-weather trials at Fairbanks, Alaska. (2) Concorde - at Caracas Airport, Venezuela. (3) Concorde: arriving at Dulles Airport, Washington. (4) Concorde - at Logan International Airport, Boston. (5) Concorde - landing at Miami International Airport. (6) Concorde - flight deck view of a landing approach.

    There is also a 3x16 inch advertising banner. The Banner states: "Produced and Printed in England by Davis, Gibson Advertising Limited". Arthur Gibson, of said firm, is considered one of the best aviation photographers of the 20th century. His firm was hired by British Aircraft to promote the Concorde.

    Everything is in VERY GOOD condition, bright, clean, solid, unmarked.

    Published by Gakken, Tokyo, Japan, 1982. First Edition. ISBN: 4050044080.

    Hardcover Book in Slipcase, 7.5x10.5 inches, 136 pages.

    Condition: GOOD book, bump and wear to the top of the spine, inner pages lightly creased at the top of the spine, crease to the bottom corner area of the last page, otherwise the book is bright, clean, clear and unmarked; in a GOOD slipcase that has wear to its edges, corners and spine ends, but is bright, and doing its job well. A solid, presentable copy.

    From a Japanese review on a Japanese website (roughly translated by Google, edited for clarity):

    ******This is a book that my parents bought me about 30 years ago. As a train lover, I often pulled this book off the bookshelf and looked at the illustrations and photos of the trains. I lost the book more than 20 years ago, but I recently found it again and bought it.

    There are many trains that have been abolished since this book was published in 1982, which makes the illustrations of trains (such as Shinkansen 0 series vehicles), all the more interesting. Not only the trains, but also train names and rail lines themselves have changed or been abolished, for example the Nagano Shinkansen is no longer running, and the steep slope Usui Pass between Karuizawa and Yokogawa in Nagano Prefecture is now pulled by heavy duty electric locomotives. There are also pictures of "Asama" of the L limited express and of the old Shinkansen's general command center.

    There are technical details I still do not understand, such as "In the Moha 781 intermediate electric car, the control of the main motor is constant current control by thyristor continuous phase control." The end of the book is full of such details, including the technology of train power, speed control, brakes, signals, etc. Maybe you will understand them.

    When I turned the pages after a long absence, I felt very nostalgic.******
