Description


Rare, unnumbered set of seven Wright Aeronautical Corporation's 1928 Flights hand-colored lithographs, depicting historic feats accomplished by several pioneers of the air; five of the seven are signed. Featuring artwork by noted artist Frank Lemon, these spectacular lithos measure approximately 17 x 21, with two affixed to same-size mounts. Five of the illustrations are signed in either pencil or fountain pen by the given subject, with three inscribed to Wallace B. Donham. Signers include: Orville Wright, Charles Lindbergh (pencil, who adds “1935”), Richard E. Byrd (ins), Albert C. Read (ins), and Louis Bleriot (ins), who makes a handwritten correction to the printed date. In overall fine condition with some insignificant chipping to brittle edges.

Created for a series entitled ‘Flights: Unforgettable Exploits of the Air,’ these lithographs were originally produced as corporate Christmas gifts limited to 500 copies. The recipient of this particularly stunning set was Wallace B. Donham, the second dean of the Harvard Business School from 1919-1942. Given that the 500 numbered editions were not autographed by the pilots portrayed, these visually appealing, seldom-seen signed versions are rendered that much more desirable. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
