We have acquired a glass slide used to make the bookplate (a marking placed
inside a book to denote ownership) of Earle L. Ovington. The design includes
a plane and scientific instruments and is very attractive. As far as we
know, this is a one-of-a-kind item. Pictures and a price quote are available
upon request. Please address your questions to:

I  am seeking a way to find out how much a menu from the banquet for
Charles Lindbergh after his flight from New York to Paris is worth.  The date on the menu is June 14,1927 and held at the Hotel Commodore, New York.  I also have letters and stamps.  Most of them are Tin-Can mail and pre-WW1. I'm not sure what they are.  Jeffrey Prosser"  kng4ada@bellsouth.net

A copy of the original manuscript of Dean Smith's "Pilot's Progress" from which the book :"By the Seat of My Pants" was extrapolated.  Missing only 3 pages out of several hundred.  In three volumes.  Offered for sale: Alan Simon amsdds@hotmail.com

New book "A Place in the Sky," contains chapters concerning the All
American Airmail Pick-up, CAM 11 (Clifford BAll) and other items of
interest to airmail history collectors.  http://facweb.stvincent.edu/academics/english/faculty/wissolik/airport.htm
Editor's Note: This is a fine contribution to the annals of aviation history in Pennsylvania where so much of pioneer flying took place.

I have just listed for sale on eBay, a very early set of 14 original photographs with accompanying pamphlet, all presumably taken by one photographer named H. M. Benner from Hammondsport, NY, that depict some of the first experiments in aviation beginning in 1908.  You can view them by clicking on this link:

I'm a retired Postmaster and a collector of postal artifacts/memorabilia. Am interested in acquiring a pair of the wings worn by the air mail pilots, away back when.  I believe they may have  been manufactured by the BASTAIN  BROS.  Am also interested in other postal related items. mrzip@bellsouth.net.
