Item # 583198
July 30, 1930
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN SUPPLEMENT, New York, July 30, 1910 The front cover contains several photos of "The First Air Liner" with the inside article "The 'Deutschland' and it's Ill-fated Voyage" which contains additional photos. During the trip, the airship experienced some motor troubles while also hitting into strong winds and evidently crashed into a forest, landing on tree tops which prevented any loss of lives.
Also in this issue is "Recent progress in Aviation - II - The Present State of the Art". This contains several plane illustrations by Wilbur Wright; Santos Dumont; Delagrange on the Voisin Machine; Bleriot; and Farman. These include both bi and mono planes.
Additional articles and illustrations are included.
This is complete in 16 pages with a small library ink stamp in the masthead area, otherwise is in very nice condition.
