About This Item

Boston: Little, Brown & Co, 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/good +. Octavo, 324pp., illustrated. A crisp, clean, very good copy in the publisher's red cloth. Boards slightly canted, but a sturdy, unmarked copy, with the delightful bookplate of William G. Gerhard, which features a hot air balloon (Gerhard appears to have been an aviation enthusiast). In a good or slightly better pictorial dust jacket, with a large chip at the crown and other light wear. Very uncommon in the lively dust jacket. A possibly fictionalized telling of the author's exploits as a reconnaisance pilot during World War I.

About Cleveland Book Company

We are proud members of the ABAA.

As a small, independent bookseller in Cleveland, Ohio, I deal in general used, rare, and antiquarian books, autographs, manuscripts, pamphlets, and personal and family papers in all subjects. My family has been in the antiquarian book business since 1971. Are you moving, downsizing, or doing some spring cleaning? Did you inherit or otherwise come into some old books? Or, maybe you've collected modern novels from the last thirty or fifty years. No matter what kinds of books you have, we'd love to take a look at them! We travel throughout Ohio, western Pennsylvania and New York, southern Michigan, and eastern Indiana, and will travel farther in some cases to look at whole libraries or even just a few particularly interesting books. Give us a call at (216) 352-3940 and we can talk more about the kinds of books you have.
