The Kon-Tiki Expedition

Thor Heyerdahl

Allen & Unwin. First UK edition and first print published by Allen & Unwin in 1950. This copy has the rare book society choice band and has been signed by the author on the front free end paper. In addition, the author has also signed on a postcard from 1947 of the expedition members. The wrapper and book are both in near fine condition. The wrapper has very minimal wear with some general rubbing to the top of the spine. It is not price clipped and displays the correct price of 12s 6d net. The band has a couple of dirt marks to the front of the band otherwise is in nice condition. It has the title of the book to the inside of the band. The boards of the book are very smart and clean. There is some light foxing marks to the first couple of pages. Overall a near fine copy and scarce signed by the author with the band. The Kon-Tiki expedition was a 1947 journey by raft across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian islands, led by Norwegian explorer and the author Thor Heyerdahl. The raft was named Kon-Tiki after the Incasun god, Viracocha, for whom "Kon-Tiki" was said to be an old name. There was an Academy Award-winning documentary film chronicling his adventures, and the 2012 dramatized feature film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Scarce signed. . Near Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 1950.

The Kon-Tiki Expedition - with wrap-around band

Heyerdahl, Thor

London: Allen and Unwin, 1950. A first edition, first printing published by Allen and Unwin in 1950. Very scarce first printing in publisher's original brown boards with blind mask design to centre of front board and gilt titles to spine - all still fresh clean and bright. The binding is tight, sound and square. Internally clean with the slightest hint of spotting to end papers. The unclipped dustjacket is crisp and vibrant with a hint of rubbing at spine ends; unusually the original dedicated Book Society wrap-around band still present. A remarkably well preserved copy.

The Kon-Tiki Expedition : By Raft Across the South Seas

Thor Heyerdahl

Tansill Press, USA, 2011. Reprint. Medium Trade Paperback. Near Fine. 235 pages. Covers have no creasing. Corners of covers are lightly bumped. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. Thor Heyerdahl is one of the greatest explorers of our day. At the age of 84 he has chosen to take a journey through his memories. This is not a chronological autobiography but rather an epic exploration of the world and the amazing events that Heyerdahl has pioneered, participated in and observed. The book is an account of life where personal experiences of a dramatic and emotional nature - secret missions during the war and near-fatal accidents - are woven together with his views on religious faith, politics and ecology. It is a book that focuses on the author's own remarkable life, and also brings us back to the dawn of civilization and out into the future. Thor Heyerdahl has spent a long lifetime wandering in the footsteps of mankind. He invites the reader to participate in that journey by sharing the details of his private and public life, his accumulated wisdom, and his friendships with a wide range of influential world leaders such as Fidel Castro and Mikhail Gorbachev.
