Estimate: $1500+

Description

The second highest-scoring French fighter ace (1894-1917 MIA) who tallied 54 victories during World War I, and was a French national hero at the time of his death at the young age of 22. Very rare vintage sepia matte-finish 3 x 3 lightweight photo of Georges Guynemer posing in his military uniform next to another gentleman, both of whom are standing in front of a pair of biplane fighter aircraft, signed in fountain pen, "15 mars 17, G. Guynemer." In very good to fine condition, with trimmed edges, and a diagonal crease to the lower right. The first item we have ever offered signed by Guynemer; this photo was autographed a little less than six months before he went missing and was presumed dead.
