"Horsens Ellehammer kommer" meaning 'Ellehammer comes to Horsens' in Danish, comic art depicting a startled public running from the impending crash of his inventor's improbable aeroplanes; brevkort mailed at Horsens -9 12 09 to Hans Jorgensen in Webster Minnesota, mild corner & edge wear, tiny ink smear in address area on back. The card itself is printed on multi-ply paperboard by Warburgs Kunst-Forlag Kobenhavn Eneret. That choice of stock is a fine-arts choice used in graphic printing to impart strength & resistance to creasing; it was "to create the highest possible quality" (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paperboard) because the printer had a greater selection of coatings to use. Jacob Christian Ellehammer was a Danish inventor who is credited with the world's first air-cooled radial engine, a monoplane, a semi-biplane, a triplane & a helicopter. This is very hard to find. The only other example we found was also postmarked in 1909. Because our postcard was cut from the left edge of the sheet, or example has more of the design showing at the left than the previously auctioned example. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. da(p)c
