First Edition, sixth printing. Signed and inscribed by Amelia Earhart to fellow aviatrix Jacqueline Cochran: "To Jackie Cochran in memory of an Electra jaunt across the continent, Amelia Earhart, 1936." With CochranÕs personal bookplate depicting a bookshelf and which reads ÒFrom the Books of Jacqueline Cochran.Ó Fine copy in original cloth in a very good dust jacket. Cochran met Earhart in New York in 1935 at Paul Hammond's house. They bonded instantly and became close friends. In 1936, Cochran flew west across the length of the country as co-pilot with Earhart in Earhart's specially outfitted Lockheed Electra which she had just purchased for her projected 1937 around the world flight. Earhart stayed with Cochran at her Indio, California ranch where she rested up and did her preparations for her final historic flight in which she was lost over the Pacific (for a fuller account of the association and friendship, see JacquelineÕs Cochran's autobiography, The Stars At Noon, pp. 135-143). Jacqueline Cochran (1910-1980) was first woman to fly faster than the speed of sound and break the sonic barrier. She held more speed, altitude and distance records than any other pilot, male or female. No one has ever matched CochranÕs achievement. EarhartÕs presentation copies are rare. This copy mentioning the plane in which she disappeared and linking the two greatest Aviatrixes of the 20th Century is an historic piece and the finest presentation copy to appear for public sale. Enclosed in a handsome custom morocco and cloth clamshell box. Codice inventario libreria 13800J
