Booth: 2417
Presentation Synopsis:

Signed books have always been very desirable, but there is a spectrum of importance and value depending on the manner in which a book was signed. A book that is not only signed, but inscribed to someone notable or influential during the author’s life can place a book in an entirely different league of value. We will be discussing these important signed books with examples in our booth.

Presentation Synopsis:

The crash of the Hindenburg in 1937, and the fact that the cause has never been determined, forever changed the course of aviation.

The original scorched flight log removed from the crash by the Engineer (on exhibit at the Show) reveals critical data regarding issues with the airship.

Research has uncovered that one of the issues cited in the log is actually listed in the official crash investigation report as a potential cause of the crash. Can this Log be the “Smoking Gun”?
