A propos de cet article

Blue cloth with black title blocks and blue and black lettering. Water damage to lower edge of both boards, resulting in white spots to front board, and a red stain to rear board as can be seen in the photos, text also has a slight wave to the same area. Text is otherwise clean and white, no marks. Clipped DJ shows rubbing to edges, small chips and tears, the same red water stain to rear panel. Still a nice copy despite these obvious flaws. Translated by Lewis Galantière. "The author, whose career ended with his disappearance while on a flight over the Mediterranean in the summer of 1944, received the Grand Prix of the Academie Français for this introduction into literature of the airplanes and the men "who sail the sky." Illustrated by John O'Hara Cosgrave, II." (from the jacket) Illustrated Edition, Twenty-First Printing. N° de réf. du libraire B52715

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Recipient of the Grand Prix of the Académie Française, Wind, Sand and Stars captures the grandeur, danger, and isolation of flight. Its exciting account of air adventure, combined with lyrical prose and the spirit of a philosopher, makes it one of the most popular works ever written about flying. Translated by Lewis Galantière.
