The Hindenburg

Something a bit different today. First, let's start with the book:
"The Adventures of the U-202" by Baron Spiegel von und Peckelsheim. Published by The Century Co., 1917.

Enough of the previews, let's get to the feature presentation:

Opening credits, if you will. On to the action:

End credits:

There's even a theme song, "The Hindenburg Anthem" -

  1. That is both precious and brilliant. wow!

  2. You have got to be kidding me. You obtain the book, and the contents include a Flipbook feature plus music? WOW! This is brilliant beyond belief.

  3. You've gotta love this kid! I wonder what he's doing these days.

  4. Totally cool find!
    And that is some last name for the book's author, makes me think of that Monty Python sketch.

  5. After seeing this, I had to look up the name. Because, you just KNOW this kid (who probably got in trouble a lot as a kid) went on to become something, right?? :=)

    Now I wonder if it's this Karl Coryat...?

  6. Okay, I couldn't help myself. With a little more digging, I found Karl's email address. Hopefully the email address is good...because I've invited him to take a look a this blog entry.

  7. Bella, I've been in contact with Karl before, he was amused that these were still around but wasn't interested in having the books back.
