H.King Aeromarine Origins (Putnam)

Three days after the float-glider trials over the Seine, Gabriel Voisin and Louis Bleriot met by chance and Bleriot suggested going into partnership.
   This was agreed; and so largely to Bleriot's ideas (and much to Gabriel's alarm) a powered aircraft was built, the essential features of which were two ellipsoidal wing cellules arranged in tandem. Gabriel relates a tale of doubt and woe, the last indignity being the necessity of giving up the floats, which he knew so well, and of replacing them 'with "skids" equipped with buoyancy bags'.
   The initial test took place in 1906, on Lake Enghien. 'It was disastrous,' says Gabriel; so after further trials and errors, and by common consent, the idea of trials from water was given up.

Bleriot's third try. The forward elevator cell is set between the wings, with 2 propellers in front of it. Louis Bleriot embarked on a somewhat hit-and-miss programme of experimentation with his No III floatplane, seen here on Lac d'Enghien in 1906. It subsequently underwent a number of transformations, but never took to the air.
