2 black and white photographs, 7 x 9 and 7 x 5 inches, the larger with inkstamp on verso of M. Rol.

The Paris Air Show started in December 1908 as part of the 11th Paris Automobile Show, then held in the Grand Palais in the heart of Paris. The first Salon international de l'aéronautique featured aircraft by several manufacturers.
Comprising: the Wright Flyer in the Grand Palais, this the example used at Pau and elsewhere, and given by Wilbur to the backer Lazare Weiller; Wilbur at the controls of that aircraft, probably at Camp d'Auvours in the summer of 1908.
