Item Description: Alcoholics Anonymous World Services Inc., New York, 1965. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Second edition. Alcoholics Anonymous. [Bill Wilson and Lois Wilson]. Alcoholics Anonymous. The Story of How Many Thousands and Men and Women have Recovered from Alcoholism. New York: Alcoholics Anonymous World Service Inc., 1965. Second Edition, Seventh Printing. Inscribed by Bill and Lois Wilson on verso of front free endpaper : "Dear Chuck -/ Lois Joins me / in all affection / and in confident / faith that the / years to come / will be your finest / Ever. / Bill / Slipping Stones / Jan 15 / 66". Below that is Lois' inscription in her own hand: "With Heaps of Love / Lois." Octavo. xxx, 575 pages. Bound in full blue morocco with gilt rules on covers, and inner dentelles, light-yellow silk bookmark bound in. Spine in six compartments with gilt lettering, rules and decorations. Top edge gilt. Lovely blue binding in beautiful condition, believed to be one of only five copies so bound by AA World Services in New York in 1965. A most unusual and desirable signed copy. Very near fine (trivial shelfwear wear only). "Chuck" here is Chuck Gibian, who was actually sponsored in AA by Bill Wilson. They became close friends over the years. This copy comes with a twelve page typescript by Chuck together with his AA "Birds of a Feather" pin. Chuck's typescript has minor annotations and corrections in ink, old paperclup rust on the top left corner Very good. More Information: Lois Wilson (1891-1988), the wife of AA cofounder Bill Wilson, was herself the cofounder of Al-Anon, a support group for family and friends of alcoholics. Birds of a Feather International is an organization formed in response to the need of pilots and other cockpit crew members for a forum in which the subject of alcohol and drug addiction can be discussed with impunity and immunity. The organization's website traces their beginning to 1972. By 1976, after a great deal of planning and education and with the assistance of the FAA and United Airlines, the organization was in full swing and ready for the next step. Chuck was an early "Bird" with 12 years of sobriety. He served as a panel member on behalf of the National Council on Alcoholism. In November 1976, the FAA issued their exemption letter allowing sober recovering alcoholics to fly as crew members. Chuck was the first to apply and receive his exemption on January 15, 1977 (Birds of a Feather Website). The 12-page testimonial included here recounts Chuck's experience as a professional airline pilot and recovering alcoholic. His "Bird of a Feather" pin is attached to the last page of the typescript. This would be a centerpiece for any AA collection, unusual binding and a fine inscription by Bill and Lois to an actual Wilson sponsee. Bookseller Inventory # 3811
