  • The Early Birds Mural Brochure - Liquidometer Corp, 1953

    SKU: 20-POST-30

     4pp, illus, card covers tied with cord, 11x9".  Published in 1953 on the 50th anniversary of the first powered flight.  Interior two pages show the mural in color on one page and the facing page has a numbered map identifying all the aviators and aircraft pictured.  This mural was commissioned by Clarence deGriers in 1940 and resided in Liquidometer headquarters until 1955 at which time it was donated from place-to-place, eventually ending up at the Indiana Historical Society whre it is apparently being restored.  The artist, Justin Gruelle, is a well-known Indiana artist who was well known for his WPA work in the 1930's.  Brochure is very good; one small corner bump.

     Commercial color profile print by Donald Art Co., 1962, printed in Holland.  8x10", on heavy card stock.  Reverse carries a rubber stamp from Art Publishers, Cincinnati.  Of course, this is the aircraft of the infamous "Wrong-Way Corrigan" who flew the Atlantic by "mistake?" and without the proper permissions.  Excellent condition.

  • Original Pen & Ink Drawing - Fokker C-2

    SKU: 20-POST-28

    Appears to be an original drawing (or perhaps highlighted with ink) of the Fokker C-2 flown by Byrd, Balchen, Noville and Acosta in the third trans-Atlantic crossing in 1927.  12x8", signed "R Veen 1952".  About good +, partial crease across center (vertical) visible only on reverse.

  • Army Newsmap - 1945

    SKU: 20-POST-27

     Huge poster 47x35" to relay war news to the troops.  This one distributed 4 June 1945 and reporting the news for the week of 22-29 May 1945.   One side shows maps of the various theaters of war at the time such as the B-29 bombing of Tokyo and Chinese victories over the Japanese forces.  The reverse is truly fascinating in that it relates the story of propaganda leaflets; why they are used, how they are deployed and how they work to get the enemy to surrender.  Another unknown-to-me-poster discovered!  Very good condition, folded like most.

  • Aristo-Craft ID Model Poster - circa 1947

    SKU: 20-POST-26

     Wonderful two-side color poster.  Open size 32x21".  One-half (16x21") of one side has the B-17/P-39 color rendering shown to the left.  The other one-half, same side, is a list of instructions on how to paint and display the black plastic ID models they sold. The entire reverse side (32x21") is the depiction of all of the models Aristo-Craft was selling.  I have reason to believe these were the surplus solid black plastic ID models so prevalent in WWII and now so difficult to find.  Eight-folded, bright colors, about good +, some weakening at the folds.

  • Curtiss-Wright Experimental Aircraft Blueprint - 1932

    SKU: 20-POST-25

     Very large 54x32" original blueprint for the Pegasus Model XF-32 Freighter.  Classic top/side/front view drawing of this single-engine high wing aircraft.  Data table at the left shows a 600 HP engine, gross weight of 11,000 lb, cruise at 101 mph, range of 455 miles.  Folded 18 times to a folded size of 9x12".  Excellent original condition.  Very rare drawing of an experimental aircraft (likely never made it past the drawing board) in the Golden Age of aviation development.

  • Curtiss-Wright Cowling Blueprint - 1945

    SKU: 20-POST-24

     Large 34x22" original blueprint with unusual perspective of the closed cowling on the left and the cowling with all access panels open on the right.  Index on the lower right is rubber stamped "Advance Print" and in lettered: "General Arrangement/Engine Cowling".  No indication on the drqawing of the aircraft or engine but I am guessing that it's for an inline internal combustion engine.  Very good condition.
