JUPP WIERTZ (1881-1939)EN 2 JOURS VERS L'AMÉRIQUE DU NORD! 1936. 32 3/4x23 inches, 83 1/4x58 1/2 cm. Eschebach & Schaefer, Leipzig. Condition B+: tears at edges, some slightly into image; creases, minor abrasions and scratches in margins and image; small pin holes at edges. Paper. Matted and framed. The Hindenburg Zeppelin (LZ-129) pictured soaring over the skyscrapers of Manhattan. A gap in the cloudy sky illuminates the spire of the Empire State Building, whose tower was originally conceived as a dirigible docking mast. This idea was eventually abandoned when the winds proved too unpredictable at 1,350 feet above the city. The Hindenburg's illustrious career was terminated on May 6, 1937, when she burst into flames upon landing in Lakehurst, New Jersey. This is an extremely rare French version; the poster also appears in German, Italian and English. Fly Now! p. 49.
