Unusual Aviation Relics for the Discerning Collector
Friends and Fellow Collectors: After publishing 14 paper catalogs over the last 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" six years ago. CHECK OFTEN FOR NEW ITEMS; you will find the most current at the beginning of each category. The "AIRSHIP" category has a good number of new additions from a recently purchased collection. NEW BUTTONS: "LFC" for Lafayette Escadrille and Lafayette Flying Corps; "Vietnam" for books, papers and misc mostly related to Vietnam POWs; "Combat Reports" for official WWI/WWII typed reports signed by pilot aces; "Henri Farre Art" for prints and ephemera from this famous WWI aviation artist. I look forward to working with you to develop your collections and to meet your unique interests. 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.
