WILEY POST
WILEY POST (1898-1935). An early pilot, Post was the first pilot to do a solo circumnavigation. Post was killed in an air crash along with Will Rogers. HAROLD GATTY (1903-1957). Gatty, an aviation pioneer, was known for his navigation skills. In 1931, he and pilot Wiley Post flew around the world in under nine days in a Lockheed Vega. PS. 8” x 5 ½”. 1931. Springfield, Massachusetts. A black and white photograph signed “Wiley Post” and “Harold Gatty”. It shows Post speaking at a microphone on a bunting draped platform. Gatty is shown off to the side along with five others. This was clearly during a celebration marking the successful around-the-world flight on which Post and Gatty shattered the record that had been established by the Graf Zeppelin. Their flight, leaving New York a month earlier than the date on this photo and returning on July 1st had made them popular heroes in a time infatuated with such adventures. There are notes in an unidentified hand on the back of this candid photo that provide the date and location. The photograph is slightly trimmed which has cost a portion of the notes, but otherwise it is mostly fine. The aviators are uncommon autographs together. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

First edition, presentation copy inscribed on the title page "Lord Kitchener of Khartoum, With the Author's Compliments". The recipient, Horatio Herbert, Earl Kitchener of Khartoum (1850–1916), was a senior British Army officer and colonial administrator who won notoriety for his imperial campaigns, most especially his scorched earth policy against the Boers. A brilliant tactician and ruthless commander, he was credited in 1898 for winning the Battle of Omdurman and securing control of the Sudan for which he was made Baron Kitchener of Khartoum and Aspall. He served as governor-general of Sudan from 19 January to 18 December 1899; a controversial figure, and "despite some hostility among politicians and officers, from the Sudan until his death Kitchener was to the British public a popular imperial hero" (ODNB). According to Raugh, this is an "eyewitness account, written by two lieutenants who participated in the Dongola Expedition". Loosely inserted is a portrait of Kitchener on a colour "Tuck's Post Card" from c. 1915, with a quote from Kitchener's address to the House of Lords on 25 Augus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Octavo, original cloth with gilt titles to the spine and front panel, stamped bald eagle vignette to the front panel, illustrated with engravings including tissue-guarded frontispiece. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the verso of the free endpaper, "My Dear Julius I hope you will never live to see such a crisis as brought this book into Being Edward E. Hale." In very good condition. First published in The Atlantic in December 1863, Edward Everett Hale's The Man Without a Country is the story of Philip Nolan, an American Army lieutenant who renounces his country during a trial for treason and is consequently sentenced to spend the rest of his days at sea without so much as a word of news about the United States. Hale published the story to bolster support for the Union in the North. By frequently mentioning specific dates and places and using numerous contemporary references, Hale skillfully convinced many readers that Nolan was an actual figure, thus increasing the story's effectiveness as a piece of patriotic literature.
