Sports - Aviation - Le Baby de Mr Santos Dumont.

Alberto Santos Dumont (1873 – 1932) invented and tested the first dirigible balloons with a gasoline engine. In 1901, he circled the Eiffel Tower with one of them and became world famous.

He became known above all for being one of the first – if not the first – to take off aboard a plane with a gasoline engine. However, credit for inventing the airplane is usually given to the Wright brothers. France is an exception, where Clément Ader made the first flight on October 9, 1890, but in military secrecy. In 1906, at a public demonstration in Paris, he flew about 60 meters at a height of two to three meters.

Autograph documents by Alberto Santos Dumont are rare and highly sought after, especially when they are in excellent condition, such as this postcard signed by the aviator.
