Through the overcast: the art of instrument flying

New York: Funk & Wagnalls Company, 1938. First edition. 8vo, pp. xii, 356; photograph frontispiece, several illustrations and diagrams throughout; original blue cloth stamped in silver on the front cover and spine; very good with a slightly skewed spine and a faint dampstain on the front free endpaper; lacks the dust jacket. Illustrated by Frank L. Carlson and Fred L. Meagher. Inscribed by Jordanoff to Ed Sommer: "To my best old 'pal' 'Ed' Sommer - the smartest pilot in our neighborhood who graduated in the first ever days of flying - and who eventually proved that flying is a simple thing - since only little brains is required - he still can land a plane. Happy landing, Ed. Jordanoff." The frontispiece is signed "Jerry" in ink. Jordanoff was an early aviator in the United States, served as a pilot in the Balkan Wars before emigrating to the U.S., and wrote several books on how to fly (Assen Jordanoff Papers 1897 - 1967, National Air and Space Museum).
