In 1917 while recovering from wounds suffered when he was shot down in July of that year von Richthofen wrote an autobiography. Translated into English it remains a very popular book with WW I aviation enthusiasts.

We offer you the ORIGINAL paperback. It is a small book and at the time sold for one mark! The book shows the wear that you might expect in a one hundred year old book but the binding is complete and all of the pages are intact. It has a yellow cover and shows his red Albatros shooting down an enemy plane. It is also illustrated with some interesting photos.

But inside there is also a surprise. It is the original sales brochure for the book and for other aviation related books from the publisher. I have only seen one other original book like this. Of course it is in German but is an important book on the “Red Baron.”
