The English translation of Lehmann's autobiography "Zeppelin", written in collaboration with Leonhard Adelt, was published in the United States the summer of 1937. Commander Rosendahl was given the unhappy task of writing the forward for the book as well as a final chapter in which he described the Hindenburg disaster. Rosendahl concluded his forward, dated June 7, 1937 (one month to the day following Lehmann's death) with the following epitaph: The name and memory of Lehmann are now inseparably linked with those of Zeppelin and his fellow pioneers who have given and are giving their lives unselfishly to the furtherance of the airship ideal. To all of us his book is a fitting monument to what he gave and did for civilization. The world is indebted to Ernst Lehmann; it owes and concedes him a place of honor. A rare collectible, with dust jacket that is lightly soiled, showing a few closed tears, edgewear and chipping particularly to the top of the spine, protected in removable, plastic transparency.
