Descripción:

Large octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board and airship design to upper board gilt. Numerous illustrations within the text. Cloth a little rubbed and scuffed, particularly at the corners and ends of spine, a few small spots and marks to cloth, contents faintly toned, spine a little cracked between pages 16 and 17 and pages 112 and 113. A very good copy. First English language edition, first impression of this uncommon early work on airships by the Prussian Balloon Corps Captain A. Hildebrandt, originally published in Germany in 1906. Airships Past and Present covers in detail all aspects of ballooning and airships, including their history, operation by both amateurs and professionals, military uses, scientific investigations carried out at altitude, aerial photography, and the use of carrier pigeons. The author, in addition to his years of experience as a balloonist and instructor, has drawn on "a large number of sources that have not hitherto been accessible to the general reader", and included numerous photographic illustrations and engravings within the text.

Descripción ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Estado de conservación: NEW. Reprinted from edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.
