North to the Orient

New York: Harcourt, Brace, [1935]. First edition, 8vo, pp. 255, [1]; map endpapers and maps in the text by Charles A. Lindbergh; frontispiece; original blue cloth stamped in silver on spine and upper cover; silver dust jacket printed in blue on the spine; previous owner's 1935 signature on front free endpaper, minor wrinkling at the edges of the jacket and one or two miniscule teras, but in all a fine copy in a near fine jacket. The account of the 1931 flight by her and her husband, Charles Lindbergh, from the United States to Japan and China, by the northern route over Canada, Alaska, and Siberia. It also documented their volunteering flights as relief efforts for the infamous Central China flood of 1931. The jacket is unusual - not the one ordinarily seen. This is the second time I have had this jacket - both came out of Minnesota, and it may have some connection to Lindberg's home state. Item #53035
