pp. xii, 305. Map upon front endpaper. Numerous black and white photographic plates. " A masterly account of the first solo flight made from Great Britain to Canada via Greenland. Recounts author's mishaps, his crash at Iceland, his second attempt, his Greenland adventures, and his ultimate success. Also includes much that is extremely interesting about Mr. Grierson's record flight from India to Great Britain and his experiences of winter aviation in Europe. Tells of an intrepid piece of pioneering courageously carried out, but which history has, perhaps, been made." - from dust jacket. Prior owner's name and date atop half-title page else unmarked.
