    Charles Lindbergh: Signed Spirit of St. Louis Poster. On May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh stunned the world when he flew from New York to Paris in the Spirit of St. Louis. Literally overnight, he became the most famous man in the world. Just about two months later, Lindbergh and his plane began a sweeping national tour sponsored by multimillionaire Harry Guggenheim. With its designated purpose being the generation of increased public interest in, and support of, aviation, Lindbergh and The Spirit of St. Louis visited 48 states and landed in 92 cities from July 20 through October 23, 1927. For those larger cities on the flight path, but not on the tour, Lindbergh would fly low above a waiting crowd and drop a canvass tube containing one of these signed posters. With a great image of the legendary plane, the poster carries a salutation and indirect apology - "Because of the limited time.....it is impossible for the 'Spirit of St. Louis' to land in your city". The poster is enhanced by a spectacular signature, almost 3" long and over 1" high: "Charles A. Lindbergh". 19" x 26.5" sight size. Some toning and spotting, folds, a slight tear and small damp-stain in the lower left corner, else very good.
