Originalaufnahmen von der Südamerika-Fahrt des Luftschiffes LZ 127 “Graf Zeppelin” vom 18. Mai bis 6. Juni 1930.
First edition, and only edition. Uncommon, just one copy recorded on OCLC, ETH-Bibliothek, Zurich. Superb pictorial record of the Europe-Pan American demonstration flight, Friedrichshafen – Seville – Brazil – Lakehurst, NJ – Seville – Friedrichshafen. A regularly scheduled commercial passenger, mail, and freight service between Germany and Brazil was established two years later, and ran for five years until LZ 127 was decommissioned and retired immediately following the Hindenburg disaster.
