    Description

    Charles Lindbergh Inscribed Presentation Copy of Of Flight and Life. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, [1948]. 8vo. Inscribed by the author on the title page, "To Dr. Dana Atchley/ with great admiration/ and best wishes from/ Charles A. Lindbergh/ August 1948". Lindbergh rose from virtual obscurity to become one of the earliest media superstars after flying the first nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic from New York to Paris in 1927. He authored several books, including Of Flight and Life. One of his books, The Spirit of St. Louis, won a Pulitzer Prize in 1954. Dr. Dana Atchley, the recipient of this book, helped care for Lindbergh during his final illness. Lindbergh was written in 1998 accusing Atchley of having an affair with Lindbergh's wife, Anne.
