Lot 441: TLS signed "Charles A. Lindbergh," one page, 8.25 x 11, June 15, 1959. Letter regarding his donation to the Pan American Airways Museum. In part: "All of the material I left is an outright gift to Pan American World Airways for the Museum…The drafting instruments I used frequently in laying out air routes and courses to be followed on maps and charts, including many in the Caribbean, Arctic, Pacific, and Atlantic areas. I also used these instruments in drawing the maps, chapter headings, etc. for 'North to the Orient,' and 'Listen! The Wind.' My wife and I used the Graflex camera for photographing possible landing areas and base locations from 1929 through 1932. (After that we used a Leica, because of its compactness and light weight.) We used the Graflex also for photographing, from both air and ground, various archaeological sites." Light show-through from old toned adhesive to reverse, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Provenance: The Everett Fisher Collection.
