In a very good, unclipped dust jacket with a 1/4" deep by 1/8" wide chip at the upper corner of the front panel at the fold to the spine area and several closed tears and related creasing around the edges of the front panel. Signed and warmly inscribed "To Dr. and Mrs. Charles A Beard | With great admiration | and best wishes" by the author and famous pilot in the year of publication. It is unfortunate though that the inscription is blurred by either the ink from Lindbergh's pen or the ink from another handwritten, ink note having been laid-in before it dried. This is an outstanding example of an association copy inscribed by one luminary to another. Lindbergh needs little in the way of introduction other than to say his signature is not often seen. Dr. Charles A. Beard was one of the most influential historians of the early 20th century and author of many books on history and political science and is best known for a book he co-wrote with his wife, The Rise of American Civilization in 1927. However, the link between Lindbergh and the Beards became more firmly cemented in the mid to late 1930's when both took a firm isolationist stand against Roosevelt in his attempts to bring the United States into war with Germany. Both men ultimately paid a dear price for their support of the Anti-War Movement. 56 pages of text. A very nice collectable copy.
