Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $405.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Original linen-backed patent lithograph for Reinhold Tiling's invention of a flying rocket, one page, 12.5 x 10.5, June 9, 1932. The diagram depicts a flying rocket with folding and moveable fins for different stages of flight, to allow gliding, steering, and swinging out like a parachute for safely landing. Includes the printed British "Patent Specification" document, two pages on one sheet, which describes the invention. The specification sheet bears a "U.S. Patent Office Library" ink stamp on the first page. In fine condition. Reinhold Tiling was a German engineer, pilot, and rocket pioneer (1893-1933) who was killed as a result of burns suffered in an explosion at his rocket workshop. In 1931, his demonstration that 188 postcards could be carried reliably on a rocket made his projects famous and drew widespread public interest.
