The Tradgedy of the Italia; With the Rescuers to the Red Tent

D. Appleton: NY 1929 Photos, 8.75 x 5.5", gilt-lettered scarlet cloth, 208pp, covers with just a hint of edge-wear, hinges a bit loose, some light spotting to end papers and edges of textblock, bookplate of former owner on front fly (over old inscription?) in a rubbed and edge-worn, soiled, price-clipped dustjacket. FIRST EDITION ("[1]" on last page). SCARCE title. With an old, browned newspaper clipping from 1933 stating that the Umberto Nobile, the commander of The Italia (a semi-rigid aircraft) had died- which was erroneous). The Italia tried to fly over the North Pole and return, but crashed in the Arctic; Nobile survived, though Roald Amundsen died in an attempt to rescue Nobile. The movie "The Red Tent" is based on this incident.
