     Mario Cobianchi wrote this very interesting book in the year 1943 and he died in the 1944. The book isn't for sale and in Italy there are only 11 copies in the libraries. It is the source of the information on other Italian pioneers which I have sent to you including Giuseppe Cei, Pasqua marquis Ugolino Vivaldi, Mario Calderara and Adorno Enrico Cammarota
     His book is very interesting in that there are the names of italian aviation motors from 1884 to 1913 and the names of the italian pioneers killed from 1909 to 1914.
