Vanity Fair Print -'Alberto Santos Dumont'

Vanity Fair Print - Santos - Ballon Aviator

'On the 20th July 1873, San Paulo - that state of impenetrable red dust in the South of Brazil - became responsible for the production of the greatest flyer that has yet seen the world from above; in token of which the Comtesse D'Eu, Princess Imperial of Brazil, has lately bestowed upon him a golden amulet sacred to the memory of St. Benedict: which he wears suspended from a chain bracelet on his left wrist ......

He made his first balloon ascent only four years ago with the late M. Mucheron. He made twenty more in the same year; after which he built his own balloon 'the Bresil'. There followed five Santos-Dumonts, and at last in Number Six he has attained Deutsch success. Eminently adapted by nature for an aeronaut, he has the agility of a cat, the feet of a climber, the hands of an engineer and the airiness of barely seven stone.'...........
