There is a lengthy gift inscription to a prior owner on the verso side of the fly title page. Both volumes are in fine unclipped dust jackets. Volume I is signed and inscribed by the author on the fly title page. Extensive research and years of searching for every variant copy for all of the titles in the Rivers of America series have allowed the author to compile an extremely detailed and highly authoritative bibliography of this series. Volume 1 contains 434 pages while volume 2 contains pages 435 to 899 which includes an index for both volumes. I am of the opinion that this is one of the best bibliographies ever published as it goes into extreme detail of each volume and every variant, provides a biography of each author and each illustrator. I know of no other bibliography that covers as much material or as thoroughly. An invaluable resource for any serious collector of this series. An extremely handsome set and now that it is out of print sure to grow in value.

  • Click on Image to expand Lindbergh, Charles A.:  Of Flight and Life.  New York: Charles Scribners, 1948. First Edition, First printing. Fine in dark blue cloth covered boards with gilt text on the spine. A 12mo measuring 7 1/4 by 5 inches. 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.
