About this Item: Brewer, Warren & Putnam, New York, 1932. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. Second printing, with the square 78 rpm record of Amelia's Earhart's International Broadcast on May 22, 1932 housed in the rear pocket. An assortment of autobiographical reminiscences and thoughts on the history of flight, women pilots, and the future of aviation, published shortly after Earhart became the first woman to fly alone over the Atlantic Ocean. An American icon, Earhart (1897-1937?) took an active part in efforts to open aviation to women and end male domination in the new field. In July 1937, she and navigator Fred Noonan vanished in the central Pacific after completing more than two-thirds of a flight around the world. Includes a frontispiece portrait and 30 illustrations. Signed by Amelia Earhart on the half-title. Octavo. Original brown cloth binding, with white titles. It appears the half-title signed by Earhart was removed from another copy and neatly tipped in to this one as it followed by second half-title. Minor crease to the title page and dedication page, with clippings from the dust jacket and a second rear pocket are affixed to a pair of concluding blank leaves. Small bookseller's label to the rear pastedown. A few pencil dashes to the bottom edge. The spine is a touch sun faded, with some general minor edgewear; else about very good.

About this Item: New York Harcourt Brace 1932, 1932. First Edition, sixth printing. Signed and inscribed by Amelia Earhart to fellow aviatrix Jacqueline Cochran: "To Jackie Cochran in memory of an Electra jaunt across the continent, Amelia Earhart, 1936." With CochranÕs personal bookplate depicting a bookshelf and which reads ÒFrom the Books of Jacqueline Cochran.Ó Fine copy in original cloth in a very good dust jacket. Cochran met Earhart in New York in 1935 at Paul Hammond's house. They bonded instantly and became close friends. In 1936, Cochran flew west across the length of the country as co-pilot with Earhart in Earhart's specially outfitted Lockheed Electra which she had just purchased for her projected 1937 around the world flight. Earhart stayed with Cochran at her Indio, California ranch where she rested up and did her preparations for her final historic flight in which she was lost over the Pacific (for a fuller account of the association and friendship, see JacquelineÕs Cochran's autobiography, The Stars At Noon, pp. 135-143). Jacqueline Cochran (1910-1980) was first woman to fly faster than the speed of sound and break the sonic barrier. She held more speed, altitude and distance records than any other pilot, male or female. No one has ever matched CochranÕs achievement. EarhartÕs presentation copies are rare. This copy mentioning the plane in which she disappeared and linking the two greatest Aviatrixes of the 20th Century is an historic piece and the finest presentation copy to appear for public sale. Enclosed in a handsome custom morocco and cloth clamshell box. Seller Inventory # 13800J
