BYRD, RICHARD E. (1888-1957). AMERICAN AVIATOR AND POLAR EXPLORER.
A Vintage Magazine Photographic Portrait of the American Aviator and Polar Explorer Richard E. Byrd, Who Is Claimed to Be the First to Reach Both the North and South Poles by Air.
Argentina: El Grafico, [1928]. [1928]. - A 12-1/8 inch high by 8-3/4 inch wide leaf from the Argentinian sports magazine "El Grafico", with a full-page illustration of the aviator and polar explorer Richard E. Byrd portrayed in three-quarter profile from the chest up. Attired in a fur coat with his hood down, Byrd holds a harpoon in his hands as gazes upwards. The corners are slightly creased and there are stab-marks along the page's right edge and a short tear to the bottom edge. A color illustration of an Argentinian race car of the period is pictured on the verso. Good. The American naval officer and explorer Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd (1888-1957) was a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor. His claim to have been the first to have reached the North Pole by air was disputed by others although his co-pilot Bennett supported Byrd's claims. Byrd led his first Antarctic expedition in 1928 and was the first to reach the South Pole by air in 1929. Founded by Constancio Vigil in 1919, "El Grafico" was an Argentine sports magazine which started as a weekly newspaper before subsequently turning exclusively to the coverage of sports. One of the most highly regarded sports magazines in Latin America, it came to earn the nickname "La Biblia de deporte" ("The Bible of sports"). Good .

From the library of Leonard Bernstein [Sotheby Sale 7070, Lot #144].

Translated from the French by B. Bardwell. Series editor Marc Vokaer writes in an introductory note: "The Grand-Place has the same attraction for the traveller passing through Brussels as St. Mark's Square has for the visitor to Venice. Both sites have this characteristic in common: despite the differences in style between the contrasting elements of their buildings a harmonious architectural unity has finally been achieved. It is worth a visit for its art alone. But..for anyone interested in history, its past is a mine of information concerning the origins of Brussels and the life of the city." . Good .
