Lot 540: Quick ink signature, "Orville Wright," and pencil signature, "Cte. de Lambert," on the reverse of the off-white 3.25 x 2.5 personal calling card of lawyer Charles Reibel. The card is dated October 18, 1909, in another hand, the day that Lambert famously flew a Wright Flyer around the Eiffel Tower. In very good condition, with light soiling and a couple ink fingerprints (one slightly affecting the Lambert signature). Accompanied by unsigned photos and a mat for display. A fabulous piece with an excellent association to a historic moment in aviation.
