Description: OTTOMAR ANTON (1895-1976) L'AMÉRIQUE DU SUD EN 3 JOURS / HAMBURG - AMERIKA LINIE. 1936.
39 1/2x25 1/4 inches, 100x64 cm. Muhlmeister & Johler, Hamburg.
Condition B+: repaired tears and restoration in image and margins.
The Graf Zeppelin, sister ship of the ill-fated Hindenburg, is depicted here practically spanning the Atlantic Ocean. By 1930, after several widely publicized voyages (including around the world in 1929 which made her the first airship to ever cross the Pacific Ocean non-stop), the Graf Zeppelin settled into a regular transatlantic route. When she was taken out of service in 1937, barely a month after the Hindenburg disaster, she had made a total of 143 Atlantic crossings. Several different variations of this poster exist including one which shows the route map with stops in Spain, while this copy illustrates connections to Hamburg and Berlin. This is the rare/span French version. Airlines p. 36 (var).
