Eduard Schweizer (1852–1931) made around 570 flights in Europe, Africa and the Middle East under the pseudonym Eduard Spelterini and became one of the world’s best-known aviation pioneers. His greatest aeronautical achievement was the first crossing of the Alps in 1898 in a balloon called Wega. He began taking photos from the basket in 1893 and left behind a unique collection of breathtaking aerial views – mainly of the Alps and Swiss cities, but also including Cairo, Copenhagen and Johannesburg as well as South African landscapes. Around 130 Spelterini images from the period 1893–1924 are preserved in the Swiss National Library's Prints and Drawings Department.
