    More Information:

    Amelia Earhart. The Fun of It. Random Records of My Own Flying and of Women in Aviation. New York: Harcourt Brace and Company, 1932.

    Sixth printing. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper. Octavo. 218 pages. Illustrated. Retains the miniature vinyl recording commemorating "High Spots of the First Woman's Solo TransAtlantic Flight". The record is unmarked and still in its pocket sleeve with the gold seal present.

    Original brown cloth boards with gilt lettering. Three old newspaper clippings laid-in (causing browning to the text), one clipping is a photo, another is an announcement of an Earhart public appearance, and the other an account of Earhart's fatal disappearance. The mylar-protected dust jacket is clean and bright with some mild chipping at the top and bottom edges (no loss of text) and along the front joint and spine, overall in very good plus condition.

    Signed copies are rare, even more so when accompanied by the recording.
