“Presentation” first edition, number 577 of an undetermined limitation, signed by Lindbergh on a tipped-in leaf.
Winner of the 1954 Pulitzer Prize for Autobiography, this is Lindbergh's riveting account of the first solo nonstop flight between the United States and Europe he undertook in 1927. "At its exciting best, this book keeps the reader cockpit-close to a rare adventure" (Time). Illustrated with 16 pages of photographs, double-page map of the flight, and mechanical diagrams of the plane. Without scarce original shipping carton.
Just a touch of wear to acetate at spine head. A fine signed copy.
