A rare Spanish language route map and guidebook published by Pan American & Grace Airways Inc. The front cover is illustrated with a portrait of a DC-2, while inside is a small drawing of a Sikorsky S-42 flying boat, the pre-cursor to the famed Clipper. PanAm-Grace was founded in 1928 to bid on an airmail contract. Known later as “PanAgra”, the airline stayed in service until merged into Braniff in 1967.
The pamphlet was printed by Luis Hoyos Salazar, who is known to have printed other works for the company.
Rare: OCLC locates only one institutional example, at the National Museum of Peru; a later enlarged edition is known, published in 1948
