Descripción

First Edition. Gilt titling to cover and spine. Illlustrated with many photographic plates, frontispiece photograph of the author before the Taj Mahal, and maps of voyages across Eurasia on the endpapers. Green cloth. 8vo. 399 pp. Very Good. The boards bear lightly faded spots but minimal edgewear, the pages are clean and the binding is tight. Richard Halliburton (1900 - presumed dead after March 24, 1939) was an American traveler, adventurer, and author. Best known today for having swum the length of the Panama Canal and paying the lowest toll in its history (36 cents), Halliburton was headline news for most of his brief career. His final and fatal adventure, an attempt to sail a Chinese junk, the Sea Dragon, across the Pacific Ocean from Hong Kong to the Golden Gate International Exposition in San Francisco, made him legendary. The disappearance at sea of the public figure led, like Amelia Earhart, to speculation about his fate. His penned a series of best sellers and sought to be the most traveled man in the world. He influenced many contemporary writers; including Thomas Wolfe, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Corey Ford, Ernest Hemingway, Paul Theroux, Jim Harrison, and Susan Sontag, and Walter Cronkite credits Halliburton with motivating him to take up journalism. Size: 8vo.
