Rickenbacker: An Autobiography, Signed and Inscribed by Eddie Rickenbacker, Third Printing, 1967

Original dust jacket and custom archival slipcase. This first edition, third printing of Rickenbacker is signed by the famous pilot on the first free end page and reads, “Christmas 1967 Eddie Rickenbacker 1967.” In addition to the inscription, Rickenbacker gifted the book to Dan Doughty from “Ed” and placed a Christmas sticker above his signature. The book retains its original dust jacket featuring a portrait of Rickenbacker in front of fighter planes. The book is presented in a complimentary blue custom archival slipcase. Overall very good condition. The signature on the first free end page is in clear, dark marker and the Christmas sticker is still well-pasted down. The black and blue boards featuring Rickenbacker’s initials are slightly sunned along the top and bottom edges. The binding is partially loose, but otherwise the boards are in very good condition. The pages are internally clean and bright. The book’s original dust jacket is in very good condition with only one clipped corner and it is now protected by a mylar cover. The book is housed in a custom made archival blue slipcase adorned with a photo of a young Rickenbacker in front of a fighter plane. Dimensions: 9.75” H x 6.75” W x 2.5” D (with slipcase)
