#6196 - Orville Wright and Charles de Lambert Signed Program and Photographs Estimate: $1,000+

Orville and his star pupil sign a program for the 1909 'Grand Quinzaine d'Aviation de Paris'

Fantastic group of six items from the 1909 'Grand Quinzaine d'Aviation de Paris,' at which French aviator Charles de Lambert took virtually all prizes. Triumphant and flouting the law, on October 18th, he flew over the city of Paris and circled the Eiffel Tower—the first time any aircraft had done so. Rounding the Eiffel Tower, he headed back to the aerodrome at Juvisy-sur-Orge. His feat was all the more amazing as it had been only a few months earlier that he had been taught to fly by Orville and Wilbur Wright at Pau. Includes:

An original program for the 'Grand Quinzaine d'Aviation de Paris,' held in October 1909, 20 pages, 5.5 x 8.5, signed on the title page in crisp ink by Wright and de Lambert, "Orville Wright" and "Cte. de Lambert."

Five original vintage photographs of the event, 6.5 x 4, including one of de Lambert's flight to the Eiffel Tower.

An original 5.25 x 3.5 postcard of de Lambert in his Wright biplane, neatly signed in ink, "Cte. de Lambert." In overall very good to fine condition, with splitting along the program's spine.
