Description


Collection of almost 60 posters, schematic prints, early rocket diagrams, and blueprints from the 1950s, various sizes, all originating from the estate of German rocket pioneer Alfred Fritz. Most are labeled in German, with some of the blueprints hand-done in pencil. All of these items were intended for a space museum in Stuttgart, Germany, which never came to fruition. In very good overall condition. Fritz worked briefly in Peenemunde during World War II, but opted not to come to America with Werner von Braun, although the two kept in contact afterwards. Many of the original drawings were done by engineers that were employed by Peenemunde and show an early approach to spaceflight done before even Sputnik was launched by the Russians. RR Auction COA.
