From the cover: Great advances in the theory of aeronautics have taken place since the first edition appeared (1926), but the more fundamental parts of the theory, which are the subject of this book, remain unchanged. Particularly important advances have been made in the theory of viscous motion and of the flow of the boundary layer. Mr H. B. Squire, of the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, who was a colleague of the late author, has prepared an Appendix, indicating where important developments have taken place and where further information can be found.

The opportunity has also been taken to replace the non-dimensional k coefficients by the now more generally accepted C coefficients. One or two other minor changes have been made, and a select bibliography has been added.
