        Spirit of St. Louis Den första atlantflygaren berättar

      Stockholm: Albert Bonniers Forlag, 1955. Limited Edition / First Swedish Edition. Leather bound. Near fine. Octavo, 483pp, [10] diagrams at rear. Original blue morocco by Nylén & Co, gilt title on spine, raised bands, gilt illustration on cover with signature. Minor shelf wear at corners of spine. All gilt leaf ends. Deluxe limited edition of unspecified limitation, this being number 187. Inscribed by Charles Lindbergh on blank page, opposite his portrait. The Spirit of St. Loui was first published in 1953 and won the Pulitzer Prize for Autobiography in 1954. Lindbergh's first account of the journey, titled "We," was published shortly after he made the historic flight in 1927. Lindbergh was never happy with this account of his journey, so he wrote Of Flight and Life, which covered his life in more detail. This book was ghost written by his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, and its success is widely attributed to her writing skills.

        Memoirs: Year of Decisions and Memoirs: Years of Trial and Hope 1946-1952.

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, 1955-56. First editions of the memoirs of President Harry S. Truman. Octavo, two volumes, original black cloth, blue topstain. Inscribed by the author in both volumes one and two, "To Edward I. Wolf D.D.S. Kind regards Harry S Truman 3/28/58." Both volumes are near fine with a contemporary inscription in near fine dust jackets with light wear. Jacket design by Sidney Butchkes. Jacket photograph by Eliot Elisofon. Uncommon and desirable signed in both volumes. "Truman's Memoirs are an invaluable record of the former president's tumultuous years in office, his early days in Missouri, and his rise in local and state politics. There are delightful glimpses of his family life, striking appraisals and anecdotes of world leaders such as Churchill, Stalin, Chiang and De Gaulle, and candid disclosures about the background of national and international events. But overshadowing all is the story of the glorious task of bringing a war to an end, of working for an enduring peace and leading the free world into a new age" (Doubleday).
