My Life As An Explorer [Association Copy].

Publisher: Garden City: Garden City Pub. Co., 1925..
Reprint Quarto, just under 10 inches tall, in tan cloth stamped in brown. 544 pages. An OK but insignificant copy of a good book. However it is notable for a signed inscription on the front endpaper: "To / Will D. Parker / My Sincerest Best Wishes / Wiley Post / 3-11-35". Wiley Post is, of course, famous for setting the record for an around the world airplane trip in 1931, and for dying in a crash in Alaska accompanied by Will Rogers. Will D. (Billy) Parker (1899-1981) built and flew a rotary pusher in 1912 in Colorado. He was issued private pilot's license #44. He later did some barnstorming and then worked for Phillips Petroleum as manager of aviation fuels division. An important early aviator, he flew in the Royal Flying Corps during World War I, and later trained American pilots for the war. Some toning to the text, endpapers more seriously toned. Covers modestly soiled and lightly edgeworn. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good
