Falkenstein's WW1 service from his initial attempt to enlist as an aviator in 1917 until his release from active duty in 1919.

         Siuru I, II, and III (complete series)

      Tallinn and Tartu: Kirjanikkude Ühingu, 1919. Quartos (27 × 19.2 cm). Later buckram bindings, preserving original pictorial wrappers by Nikolai Triik and Ado Vabbe (front and back); 148, [2]; 115, [4]; and 134 pp. Three full-page illustrations by Triik (volume I), six full-page drawings, of which one in red and black, and one vignette by Vabbe, as well as his publisher's and series device (volume II); Vabbe's wrapper design once reproduced within (volume III). Resized to bindings; one volume with owner signature and some foxing to wrappers; else very good, clean copies. Complete run of this short-lived expressionist-influenced anthology by the eponymous Estonian literary group, published from 1917-19. Centered around the leading modernist poet Marie Under, the "Siuru" group consisted of bohemian spirits whose work emphasized sensual experience and joyous optimism. Among its members were Friedebert Tuglas, Arthur Adson, August Gailit, Henrik Visnapuu and Johannes Semper. In addition to these writers' works, the anthology also contains poetry by Johannes Barbarus, Rudolf Reimann, Arthur Valdes, Jaan Oks, Aleksander Tassa, Richard Roht and Johannes Aavik. Work in translation includes writing by Georg Heym, Franz Werfel, and Paul Boldt, Aubrey Beardsley, Zigmunt Krasinski, and Emile Verhaeren The group took its name from the mythological fire bird "Siuru" that appears in the Estonian national epic "Kalevipoeg". Its members were very visible in Tallinn, meeting not only in Under's salon, but also in Tallinn's coffee houses, and some members had a reputation for rebellious behavior. Wrappers by Nikolai Triik in an expressionist style that corresponds to the aesthetics of some of the "Siuru" writers: "Es wäre falsch, die Siuru-Gruppe in eine ästhetisierende Ecke abzudrängen, die sich nicht darum kümmerte, was in der Welt um sie herum geschah. Schon die Illustrationen von Nikolai Triik im ersten Album wiesen in die Richtung eines Expressionismus im Sinne einer Anklage gegen die Unmenschlichkeit der Welt" (Hasselblatt 418). The first issue was printed in 780 copies, of which 40 copies were printed on Alexandria paper, numbered (these copies all unnumbered). No papier copies in North America: KVK, OCLC show a copy of the first volume at Munich, a complete run at the Finish National Library and a microfilm at New York Public Library.

        Manuscript diaries, July 1915 - March 1919. R.N.V.R. & R.A.F

      1919 - 8 vols. Manuscript in ink and pencil, in a clear and legible hand. Occasional ms. plans and drawings, copious tipped in typescript & carbon copy signal reports, lists of ratings, printed synoptic and meteorological charts as well as playbills, newspaper clippings, menus and other ephemera. Army issue red cloth bound 16mo notebooks, 60x11mm, each with a blue paper label titled in ink. Occasional offsetting and slightly bumped, light wear to labels, otherwise very good condition. [c.1280]pp. R.N.A.S. Rochford, Detling, Manston, Westgate, Bercham Newton, July1915 - September An extensive and comprehensive record from the heart of Britain's nascent air service. Kept by an accomplished meteorologist and invaluable coordinator, these meticulous daily logs not only chart William J. S. Lockyer's personal progressionfrom Lieutenant in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve to Major in the Royal Air Force, but they also give a detailed insight into the development and full lifespan of Royal Navy Air Service before it was consolidated into the Royal Air Force in 1918. Distinctly separated from the Royal Flying Corps (the army air faction) in 1915, the R.N.A.S. focussed predominantly on supporting naval operations in terms of reconnaissance on land and sea, as well as defence particularly against enemy Zeppelin attacks. Although not a pilot himself, Lockyer begins his service as a key coordinator for the R.N.A.S. camps at Rochford and Detling. His meteorological training is put to good use, and much of the early volumes are concerned with the logging of Zeppelin raids in consolidated reports, many examples of which here tipped in in carbon copy, the information for which being gathered from observation and listening posts along the British coastline. These reports show military technology at a fascinating moment of transition - by the outbreak of war in 1914 both sides hadsufficiently developed aeronautic programs to be engaging in aerial warfare, but as radar was still decades away, the means of detection were still entirely reliant upon human sensory observation. These observances were then telegrammed or telephoned from posts tobases, and the information was gatheredinto reports and used to direct searchlamps and launch aerial counter attacks. Throughout his journals, Lockyer refers to these raids with their naval slang name of ?HICKBOO?s - an almost nightly occurrence. (For a brief spell, confusingly, he also has a cat by this name.) Considerable pride has clearly been taken in the maintenance of these logs, and Lockyer intersperses the early records with neatly drafted plans of his camps and the surrounding areas. He also shows a flair for engineering, frequently bemoaning and repairing the Italia and Lancia automobiles at the camp, as well as devising and detailing with diagrams both inventions for the drying of wellington boots, and means of signalling airborne aircraft from the ground through the use of flares and mirrors. He often makes observational trips with the pilots, and is in many instances uses these occasions to take aerial photographs with his camera, which he develops himself and remarks upon the quality of. Although very much at the front line of the home front, as it were, Lockyer's enthusiasm is at times infectious and can play down the gravity and importance of the nighttime observations being performed at these bases. Upon a visit to R.N.A.F. Eastchurch on June 15 1916 he remarks ?Eastchurch as a station is unrecognisable!!

I went in the fuselage of the latest H.P. - I returned to Detling in 40 mins - some time for me.? He also intersperses stories of visiting flying aces performing loop the loops and high jinx of emergency landing in farmers' fields, with more grave instances that better tell the very real dangers, both physical and [Attributes: Hard Cover]
