Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $630.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Early aviator (1865–1944) who was the first person in France to be taught to fly by Wilbur Wright. Nice collection of 26 original circa 1910 photos of Wright Brothers’ pupil Charles de Lambert, most measuring approximately 6.75 x 4.75. Highlighting the group are the 16 dramatic images of de Lambert in flight. Two show his Wright Flyer on the ground, two crystal-clear photos show him in the rudimentary cockpit, two are traditional portraits, one shows the aviator in a crowd of jubilant admirers, and three are of his aircraft on display in the city. Some photos bear photographers’ stamps on the reverse, including M. Branger, G. Devred, M. Rol, and Thezard. Also includes an original banquet program honoring the ‘Premiere Exposition Internationale de Locomotion Aerienne,’ which took place on October 18, 1909—the day de Lambert made his famous flight across Paris, circling the Eiffel Tower. In overall fine condition. RR Auction COA.
