Description

Presentation Edition of The Spirit of St. Louis, signed by Charles A. Lindbergh.

Octavo, xii, [2], 562pp. Red cloth, title in silver on spine and front cover. Scribner’s “A” printed on copyright page. Bumped top edge of rear cover, no impact to text block. Publisher’s acetate dust jacket, chipping to spine, shelf wear, a very good example. From a limited edition of 1000 copies signed by the author, this being number 531.

Lindbergh’s first account of his transatlantic journey, titled “We,” was published shortly after the historic flight in 1927. Lindbergh was never happy with this rushed account of his journey, written largely by the publisher. His account of the journey, The Spirit of St. Louis, was published in 1953 and won the Pulitzer Prize for Autobiography in 1954. Charles’ wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, was a ghostwriter on the book, and its success is widely attributed to her writing skills.
