Unusual Aviation Relics for the Discerning Collector  

Friends and Fellow Collectors:  After publishing 14 paper catalogs over 45 years, I have moved into the modern age!  I'm offering rare and unusual aviation memorabilia and relics in this website catalog first "unleashed" eight years ago. CHECK OFTEN FOR NEW ITEMS; you will find the most current at the beginning of each category.  The "AIRSHIP",  "Aircraft/Engine Paper" and "Photograph" categories have a good number of new additions from recently purchased collections.   As for me, I actively seek the WWI aviation paintings and lithographs of Henri Farre, memorabilia of Samuel F. Cody and of Thaddeaus Lowe; please keep me in mind if these come to you.    For the future I am working on having regular sales with discounted prices and sending you very occassional email updates on new items.
