First Woman to fly the Atlantic... Amelia Earhart...



Item # 696686

June 07, 1928

THE WORLD, New York City, June 7, 1928 

* 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 top of the front page has a one column heading: "Stultz Held" with subheads that include: "Wind Again Holds Up Miss Earhart" and more. (see images) Weather would delay her from finishing the journey for more than a week.
Complete with 30 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, small address label near the top (see), generally nice.
