ARTIFACT: This is a first edition copy of the album "Zeppelin Weltfahrten I". This celebrates the airship LZ-127 "Graf Zeppelin", a craft named after the country's airship pioneer, Count (Graf) Ferdinand von Zeppelin. The ship flew passenger flights starting in 1928 and ventured on many routes, including to the Arctic. LZ-127 operated until 1937, the year of the loss of its fellow airship Hindenburg. The round-the-world flight took place in 1929. This oversized album has about two thirds of the original 264 miniature black and white silver bromide photographs that were available for mounting: they were either not acquired by the original owner as they became available or were lost (87 are not present). All but one of the photos is mounted in the first pages of the album consecutively without gaps. These shots show the construction of the LZ-127 airship, its passenger accommodations, and many of its travels, but it also has history on other earlier airships that went before this most famous one. There are large and detailed illustrations of the airship's specifications and wonderful color maps. This volume was published by Lohse of Dresden. There was another volume published ("II") in 1933.

VINTAGE: Published 1932.

SIZE: 12 introductory pages with text and one photo of von Graf; 49 single-sided pages with photos and also color maps; approximately 9-3/8" in height and 13-3/8" in width.
