Interesting Fact on N11851 Serial Number 1225

In going through some paperwork on Serial 1225,  FAA records show that for a couple of years (1932 – 1933) this plane was licensed “Experimental” as it was demonstrating the use of an  Augustine R-4-40 engine.  Elsewhere in the file, it states that it was a two-cycle air-cooled engine.  At that time it was registered to a Norman P. Augustine of Buffalo New York.  It is interesting that the registered owner and the engine name are the same.  Anyone know about an Augustine engine?

Does any one know where I can get microfilm printed?  I finally found a reader at one of the local libraries, but it doesn’t print blueprint size.
