223 pp, small 4to (10 1/4" H). B&w photographs, maps, 3-view drawings. "(Sikorsky's Russian years began in Kiev in 1910) when as a young inventor he designed his first airplane. For the next decade, spanning the turbulent years of World War I and the Russian Revolution, Sikorsky designed a series of aircraft. By the time he emigrated to the West in 1918, he had established himself as one of Europe's preeminent aircraft designers. K.N. Finne's memoir provides the most comprehensive and authoritative documentation to date of this obscure period. Drawings, maps original photographs, appendices, and an epilogue by Sikorsky's son Sergei bring to light significant information about the development of the world's first heavy bomber - the Il'ya Muromets." Dust jacket has light wear on the rear flap-fold, minor wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
