THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 23, 1927 

* Aviator Charles Lindbergh
* Famous solo airplane flight
* Across the Atlantic Ocean

A terrific issue on Charles Lindbergh's epic flight across the Atlantic Ocean with a 3-line banner head: "LINDBERGH'S OWN STORY OF EPOCHAL FLIGHT; TEMPTED TO TURN BACK, KEEPS ON IN STORM; ASKS FISHING BOAT: 'AM I ON ROAD TO IRELAND?' "  Many subheads as well as seen in the photos, as well as a full-figure photo captioned; "The Man Who Did It. Captain Charles A. Lindbergh in a Characteristic Pose."
Coverage carries over to pages 2, 3 & 4 with a map of his flight, various articles, and more photos.
Incomplete issue containing the first 16 pages of a 44 page issue, rag edition, a little irregular along the spine, generally in very nice condition and great for display.

Note: All Lindbergh reporting is present.
