    Amazing Vintage Aeroplane Photograph Album. An historically important album containing 48 detailed 7" x 5" early aviation photographs with the studio mark of "M. Rol & Cie. Paris" on the reverse of each image. The images are mounted by corner slits into a 10.25" x 7.25" album with red cloth covers and gilt titles. This mounting type facilitates easy removal of the images from the album for inspection or reproduction. The album opens with a shot of J.T.C. Moore-Brabazon, the first person to qualify as a pilot in the U.K., in the cockpit of his aeroplane; Octave Chanute strapped to a glider and about to leap off a hill; Santos-Dumont's first aeroplane; a 1908 photograph of an early air show; priests blessing a mono-wing aeroplane; a photograph of the first manned flight from water; a photograph of a Voisin "Canard", the first successful amphibious aeroplane; and other wonderful photographs of aeroplanes, crashes, etc. This is a wonderful archive from the earliest days of winged flight. All images are in near fine condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
