  • Autographed Postcard - Leon Delagrange - circa 1908

    SKU: 21-P-356a

     Famous French aviator Delagrange's aeroplane, signed boldly in the upper left. This is an Italian card printed in Milan so the image is likely during 1908 when he toured that country in a Farman biplane.  During the tour, Delagrange made the world's first flight with a female passenger, Therese Peltier. This is a very rare card and signature since Delagrange was killed in a crash in 1910. Excellent, postally unused but addressed in a neat hand. SOLD
