Good Will Flight by Eric Sloane, N.A. Original pen and ink on paper illustration, c. 1944
Humorous original pen and ink illustration by Eric Sloane, N.A., likely intended for a WW II-era magazine such as Pegasus or Air Trails. Most certainly Sloane drew this during the Second World War. The illustration depicts a comically armed medium range bomber, complete with fuselage art depicting a dove (the bird of peace) with an olive branch in it’s beak and titled Good Will Flight. Two pilots stand looking over the aircraft, with one saying to the other “The general never believed in subtlety”. Detail, Good Will Flight by Eric Sloane, N.A.:
Exceedingly rare early airport map of Newark Airport, by Eric Sloane, N.A. While it is undated, several clues are visible. One is that there are no hangers on the airport property, only “proposed” hangers. Additionally, “Mayor Ellenstein” (Meyer C. Ellenstein) is listed amongst the prominent names – he was mayor of Newark from 1933-1941. The style of the illustration suggests mid-1930s, given what we know of Eric Sloane’s early illustrations.
This is a print, likely struck in very, very small quantities as this is the only one I have seen in nearly 20 years of collecting, selling, restoring, and authenticating works by Eric Sloane. This map benefits greatly from an original pen and ink drawing by Eric Sloane, as well as his signature, lower right. Signed, inscribed, and with remarque “To Nat The Supe of the Joint from Eric Sloane”.
