Interesting map segment of the North Atlantic Ocean showing the area that Lindbergh famously crossed in May 1927, 6.25 x 8, boldly signed in fountain pen, "Charles A. Lindbergh, May 26, 1927." Affixed to a same-size cardstock mount and in fine condition, with intersecting folds. Lindbergh became an international hero when he made the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic from May 20-21, 1927, flying from New York to Paris in the Spirit of St. Louis, a single-engine monoplane. He signed this map just five days after landing, while still being feted in France. A unique, historic piece from a momentous occasion.
