CURTISS WINNING THE GORDON BENNETT CUP.
GAMY (MARGUERITE MONTAUT). Coupe Gordon-Bennett, 1909 / Curtiss le gagnant. Paris: Mabileau & Co., 1909. Lithograph, hand-colored by pochoir process, image 11½ x 29 inches, sheet 16½ x 34 inches. Laid on linen. Minor spotting.

Ernest Montaut spotted the public interest in new technology and began to issue motor racing prints in the mid-1890s. His wife Marguerite joined him in the endeavor and focused particularly on aviation. She used "Gamy" as a pseudonym since it was an anagram of Magy.
