London: The Bodley Head, 1966. Octavo, black cloth with gilt spine lettering, 286 pp., frontispiece, eight double-sided plates. A fine copy. First English edition.
In 1937, Amelia Earhart, already famous as the first woman to cross the North Atlantic by air, hit even bigger worldwide headlines when she and her navigator, Captain Noonan, vanished without a trace in the Western Pacific during an attempt to fly around the world. However, the author, Fred Goerner, believes that perhaps, Amelia Earhart was on an espionage mission for the U.S. Government and that she was captured by the Japanese army. Item #3341
