English translation of Hildebrandt, 1907, Die Luftschiffahrt. (The two versions are quite similar though not word-for-word.)

Places a special emphasis on aerial photography.

Preface credits the International Commission for Scientific Aeronautics and its key members Assmann and Hergesell.

A very useful work touching on many topics of interest, as can be seem from the "What links here" page.
