    Description

    Charles Lindbergh Book Signed. The Voyage to Lourdes, by Alexis Carrel. New York: Harper & Brothers, [1950]. First edition. 8vo. Signed on the half-title page, "To John and Adelaide Marquand/ With admiration and best wishes/ from Charles A. Lindbergh/ 1950". Lindbergh, an aviation pioneer who piloted the first nonstop solo transatlantic flight from New York to Paris, and Alexis Carrel worked together to construct the perfusion pump, which kept living organs alive outside of the body during surgery. Their work laid the foundation for the artificial heart decades later. Together they co-authored a book, The Culture of Organs, first published in 1938. John Marquand, the recipient of this book, was a Pulitzer Prize winning American author and personal friend of Lindbergh. Lightly rubbed along edges; fine.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
