Lot 35226 View Catalog


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.

Important notice: Heritage usually auctions material at the rate of 100-110 lots per hour. On some occasions the Live Auctioneer bid software or the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now AS insurance to avoid disappointment. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject a Live Auctioneer Live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the Live Auctioneers live bidding (usually because we missed an audience bid), and may reject your bid even if it shows you AS the winning bidder. By bidding via Live Auctioneers, you agree that Heritage may award the lot to another bidder at its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since Live Auctioneer bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like floor bids. IN most cases the floor responds before the Live Auctioneer bid is presented to us, due to Internet lag time, so for consistency we have made it a policy that floor bids are always considered first over tie Live Auctioneer bids. Also please note that all Heritage lots purchased through Live Auctioneers carry a 19.50% Buyer's Premium with a $9 minimum Buyer's Premium. Please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions before you bid. This lot is being auctioned IN conjunction with a live floor auction by Heritage Auctions. All final auction and invoice information will be supplied by Heritage Auctions, and all other information should be considered preliminary.
