Early AeronauticaTM, LLC

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" 10 years ago. CHECK OFTEN FOR NEW OFFERINGS;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. Autographs is a new button with many aces and Medal of Honor additions. 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 occasional updates on new items.
