"Junkerissime" probably was meant as a superlative form of "Junkers", as
the ending " -issime" in latin language is the highest form of an intensification.

Yes indeed Jens,
from the Latin :issimus - means superlative.

Another 3-view drawing of the land-version of the Junkers "Junkerissime" project.

From the book "Prof. Junkers nannte es DIE FLIEGE" by Hermann Pohlmann.
Motorbuch Verlag Stuttgart, 1983.

"Now back to the aircraftprojects :)"

Was just my answer to touras questions, if it has to be written in
one or two words.
And ...why not show, that this is really a cultivated forum ? :D

"Errare humanum est, perseverare diabolicum..."

.. and Seneca also said :"It is better to know useless things, than to know nothing"

But sorry for that, now really back to aviation ! ;D

Hesham first picture was dated 1922. Jemiba's and Retrofit's have no date, are they also of the 1920s? Engines of 700hp suggest that (1,000hp and above was standard in the 1930s). Thanks if you can confirm.

Taking into account information from Pohlmann's book, the first studies on the "Junkerissime" (60 pax) project seems to have started in 1921, along with the construction of the Junkers G-1 (9 pax) prototype. Construction of the latter was stopped and the prototype destroyed following Allied Comission decision.

An article nicely sent to me by Borovik confirmed the date 1921 for a project close to Jemiba's picture. Before the canard twin-boomer J.1000 of 1923-24 (I have the Unicraft model* of this one, to be built, maybe in 2010...)
