. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1953. Inscribed by Lindbergh on the title page to W.W. Davies [possibly Davis]. BOMC edition without an indentation. Publisher's cloth, in original dust jacket. 8 1/4 x 5 3/8 inches (21.5 x 14 cm); 562 pp. Cloth spine lightly faded, the jacket with a few short closed tears, chips and creases, the book accompanied by a letter of authentication from Lion Heart Autographs.
This inscription is likely to fellow aviator W. W. Davis, navigator of the Woolaroc, the winner of the ill-fated Dole Air Race from Oakland to Honolulu in 1927, thus an interesting association from the year of Lindbergh's famous flight.
