Contents: Walter Mittelholzer (April 2, 1894 - May 9, 1937) was a Swiss aviation pioneer. He was active as a pilot, photographer, travel writer, and also as one of the first aviation entrepreneurs. In this book he chronicles how he was the first to do serious aerial reconnaissance of Spitzbergen, in a Junkers monoplane, in 1923. Illustrated with photographs and two fold-out maps.
This is one of those books that only survived by being part of a special library collection.
