* Woman aviator Amelia Earhart* About to make history
* Airplane "Friendship"
Less than 13 months after Charles Lindbergh's heralded accomplishment, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to achieve the feat. The front page has a one column heading: "FRIENDSHIP HAS LEAKY TANK" with subheads. (see) Weather would delay her from finishing the journey for more than a week. Other aviation related reports also on the front page.
Complete with 32 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, a few small binding slits along the spine, generally nice.
